Occupation: Robotics research and development project manager
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 have been selected to be the Science Director for Autonomy and Unmanned Systems at the US Navy's Office of Naval Research - Global, in charge of Asia/Pacific. I'll be moving to Tokyo in October, 2019.

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 several very exciting high-tech projects, developing robotic technologies for fighting piracy, defeating roadside bombs, and performing "Mission Impossible"-type projects. Those and an ocean-view office are keeping thoughts of retirement away for now.
