Design is the fifth discipline of aerospace engineering and the discipline I have been searching for all my life.

I have never developed a preference for any one of the typical four and now I know why.

I sincerely believe I was meant to design. It started with TaleSpin and SWAT Kats and Top Gun sealed the deal for me.

Everything from concept generation to layout sketching to CAD excites me.

But I also don't see myself handing over my ideas to be built by someone else.

Nothing could be more gratifying than holding something in your hand that started in your mind.
