My long-ago background is engineering where I hold a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and I worked in engineering for a number of years. The last 24 years I’ve worked for a well-known silicon valley firm where I was the chief information officer for 19 years. During that time I’ve traveled throughout the world and lived in Singapore for a few years. Lots of great friends and connections around the world.
