Bill is a jack of all trades and master of many. He has been a contributor to the advancement of hi-tech since the late 70's, and held various positions at Semiconductor Process Equipment Companies or their suppliers. His first job while attending San Jose State was working in the 3.5 Ft. hypersonic wind tunnel at NASA Ames Research Center as a Design Engineer. Designing and installation of struts with scaled wing test sections and differential pressure sensing, to measure real time boundry layer conditions. From there he enrolled in the Machine Tool Technology Program and was trained to be a journeyman machinist. Bill still uses the machining skills he was taught by the old guard to build first article prototypes and demonstration devices.
