I worked many years in the computer & software industry and then spent 10+ years as an industry consultant doing product/program management.  Currently, I'm operating a machine shop (design & prototyping) and doing various volunteer programs - most notably, the Austin Steam Train Association.  We're restoring '786', a 1917 steam locomotive.
