    Hi from Colorful Colorado

    Hi everyone!

    I've been a member here since 2013 and plan to be more active, so I thought I'd introduce myself. I've been along time music lover, ever since I had a bunch of Beatles and Chubby Checker 45's. I've also been really interested in gear and how it works, building a bunch of Knight Kits, Dynaco and Hafler amps and the like. So music and electronics have been hobbies for a long time. Actually, I turned them into a profession.

    After graduating from college with an Electrical Engineering degree, I started my career as an audio and RF design engineer working for several of broadcast equipment manufacturers. I designed phono preamps, mixing consoles, equalizers, automatic gain controls, digital recorders, FM Exciters, and signal processing gear.

    I left broadcasting to pursue another passion - aviation, and ended up in Sarasota, FL as Chief Engineer for Baker Electronics, where I designed audio systems for corporate jet aircraft. That was a cool gig - I designed loudspeakers, amplifiers, and A/V distribution systems that had to pass stringent FAA regulations for airborne equipment.

    I then moved away from audio completely and into airborne collision avoidance systems. I also moved from design to the dark side - management!

    I left a major Fortune 50 company in 2016 to pursue a second career in consulting.

    All along audio and electronics has been a passion. I'm glad to be here, and hope I can contribute!

    It would be weird to say welcome to a guy who predates me by years, so I'll just say I'm glad you will be more active! I love CO and wish I could move there. Maybe after my youngest graduates in 17 years...
