Credentials and Experience

Professional Background

I am an engineer by formal university training, with special emphasis in electronics engineering. I received my Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, Summa Cum Laude from New Mexico State University in December 2000.


How engineering relates to my consultation offering - I'll let you determine the connection! I will volunteer the fact that I'm very technically minded and have taken plenty of advanced math and science courses. I pay attention to detail, have an orientation around safety and think about optimal solutions to problems.


I worked at Raytheon, a major defense contractor, for 7 years. My career accelerated quickly in the company. I began in test engineering and eventually became a product engineer on a classified system. I worked on digital and analog/radio frequency designs. My designation assigned to me at the beginning of the 4th year of my career was E-3 Multi-Disciplined Engineer. 


The Viniyoga method I am studying and training in was developed in part by a structural engineer, T.K.V. Desikachar.
