Children: Brittney, born 1992, graduated from Stanford University in biology, currently pursuing PhD in micro-biology More…at UC Berkeley.
Brianne, born 1996, graduated from UC Irvine in biology/ecology, now working for US Fish and Wildlife.

I am currently a Science Director for Autonomy and Unmanned Systems at the US Navy's Office of Naval Research - Global, in charge of Asia/Pacific. My main job function is to seek out promising science and technology leads that can benefit the US Navy and encourage their development and ties with the US Navy with research grants. I currently live and work in Tokyo, Japan.

Before that, I served as head of the Unmanned Systems Branch at the SPAWAR Systems Center Pacific in San Diego, CA, for 8 years. I stepped down in 2012 to concentrate on having more fun leading very exciting high-tech projects, developing robotic technologies for fighting piracy, defeating roadside bombs, and performing "Mission Impossible"-type projects. Those fun jobs and an ocean-view office kept me there for over 35 years.
