The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds the most discoveries, is not 'Eureka!', but 'That's funny...' - Isaac Asimov

Competencies

I have always known that I was interested in engineering and the sciences. The only basis for the sciences is Mathematics, if you don't believe this I'm pretty sure you won't like working with ValeGreen or yours truly. Additionally, computers were obviously going to be necessary for any engineering, so I concentrated my formal schooling on those two subjects, with the idea that I would branch out into whatever engineering struck my fancy. This is how I came to have 30+ years of real experience, not 3 years of experience repeated 10 times.
