Jim specializes in the design and development of embedded control systems. He currently works for Case New Holland Industrial. A graduate of Valparaiso University with a BS in Electrical Engineering, he has performed in a number of engineering roles, including system design and analysis, software development, and management.
His career in technology started with an enlistment in the U.S. Navy. After completing nuclear training he reported to the submarine Pennsylvania which was then under construction in Groton, Connecticut. Remaining with the Pennsylvania after its commissioning, he was assigned to its Gold crew. He believes his Navy training contributed to his successful completion of an engineering degree.
