||Following graduation from Washington State University in May of 1961 I was employed with Texas Instruments, General Dynamics, and Boeing. At Boeing I was manager of Boeing Aerosystems Purchasing Agency functioning within the Boeing Customer Service organization. In 1974 I left Boeing and went into business for myself.
I was vice president of TREW Aviation Inc. from 1974 to 1980 and have been with Sonico Inc. since 1980, as president, until 2018. I also was associated with the national insurance company, Aviation Alliance Insurance Risk Retention Group Inc. (AAIRRG) and served as its president from 2010 to 2016. I remain active at Sonico assisting with corporate planning and other duties.
