Background I have over 45 years of real world electrical and lighting contracting and engineering experience with the design, selection and specification, code and standard conformance and compliance, installation, system integration, equipment startup, troubleshooting, and failure analysis of electrical power, illumination, control & instrumentation systems (SCADA) and industrial equipment and machinery. As a licensed electrician and electrical contractor, and then as a consulting engineer, I have specified and/or installed thousands of electrical and illumination equipment installations in residential, commercial, industrial, municipal, and utility occupancies. This depth of real world experience has served as a practical foundation for the numerous forensic investigations I have conducted, and for site analysis of equipment installations, accidents, injuries, failures, and fires. In addition, I am a seasoned technical and contract writer, having written hundreds of construction contracts and specifications, as well as numerous investigative reports, master plans, Operation and Maintenance Manuals, as well as forensic and expert witness reports. One of my significant strengths is in the investigative process. I am detailed and thorough, enabling me to unearth both technical and documentation facts of the case, thus assisting me in drilling down the chain of causation to identify root causes. As a member of the Illuminating Engineering Society's Street and Area Lighting Committee, I have completed dozens of illumination engineering projects, particularly in the area of outdoor municipal street and parking area lighting. I have experience in working with a wide variety of clientele including numerous architectural and engineering firms; governmental authorities, municipalities; consulting firms; attorneys; insurance companies; individuals; homeowners; small business owners; light, medium, and heavy industrial firms; utilities; the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; the U.S. Army; the U.S. Air Force; the US Farmer's Home Administration; the State of Illinois Capital Development Board; and the Army Corps of Engineers. I have worked cooperatively with numerous utility companies as well as local, county, state and federal authorities.
