The most interesting medical product I worked on was an eye surgery device. It was a highly complex, interconnected piece of equipment on a physiologically very interesting part of the body.

The competence of the employees, the environment of trust and support, and a permeating confidence that challenges can and will be overcome.

If you couldn’t be an engineer what would you be? Why?
Perhaps an architect, for the experience of watching something on paper become a real structure. Or perhaps something in the music tech arena (sound production, etc.).
