  • One of two environmental technical experts selected by the Navy and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute to participate in 3-week undersea mission using the deep submersible “ALVIN” to find the sunken submarine, USS Thresher, and perform an environmental assessment of the area.

  • One of two environmental technical experts selected by the Navy and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute to participate in 6-week undersea mission to find the sunken submarine, USS Scorpion, and perform an environmental assessment of the area (declined offer due to job change and relocation).

  • As Health Physicist of Technical Improvements, developed alternative radiation detection device for use in deep undersea environments.  Technology was later used to develop new commercial detector systems.

  • Worked as a Boilermaker to repair and rebuild one unit of a coal-fired power plant.

  • As General Manager for an Environmental and Geophysics firm, was invited by United Nations UNSCOM Special Commission in Iraq to serve as a technical expert in chemical and biological agent detection and safety and to support geophysical surveys (declined 6-week assignment due to NCWC teaching commitments).

  • As General Manager for an Environmental and Geophysics firm, participated as geophysics team member in Jefferson Proving Ground competition to detect unexploded ordnance. 

  • Directed 40-million dollar site characterization studies.  Studies involved the geological, hydrological, and biological sciences.  Wetland delineations and year-long ecological studies were also performed.

  • Managed environmental monitoring and hazardous materials programs for a national laboratory.

  • Managed department within state agency responsible for the regulation and monitoring of 14 nuclear power plants, development of a radon monitoring and assessment program, and regulation of high- and low-level radioactive wastes.

  • Served as Project Manager in the closure of a radioactive waste disposal facility.

  • Developed Risk Management Plan, prepared RCRA Hazardous Waste Permit Application, and completed environmental assessment for the U.S. Air Force.
