I have an extensive background in museum and planetarium work that spans twenty-five years. At Louisiana Tech University in Ruston Louisiana USA, I was a Mechanical Engineering major and began my planetarium career as a student worker and later as director of the university's planetarium. From there I returned to my hometown of Shreveport, Louisiana to direct the city's planetarium for ten years.
As the planetarium curator for the Audubon Louisiana Nature Center in New Orleans I was responsible for the programming and financial success of the planetarium as well as maintaining exhibits throughout the center.
I have also worked as Operations Director for a major audio visual company where I was directly responsible for the daily operation and supervision of all technical staff, hotel audio/visual managers and scheduling for road shows. In addition to my planetarium career I have also worked on design and fabrication in the archery business including writing software for calculating energy storage efficiencies of various bow designs.
Recently I have moved to Indianapolis, Indiana where I am Senior Project Manager and Operations Director at Bowen Technovation. The company designs, sells and installs audio/visual equipment and systems around the world in planetariums, museums and science centers.
