Mechanical Engineer and Nuclear Janitor by Day... Vigilante Blogger by Night... How May I Help You? at Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS)

Has your production line shutdown? Is your project behind or getting buried under higher priorities?

Has your nuclear plant scrammed? Are you suffering from lost equipment reliability or systemic failures?

Has your submarine had a plant casualty at test depth or your fire team under attack while on night patrol?

Well... for the last question please contact your boat's on watch and casualty assistance teams or your Navy SEAL/Marine Infantry support depending on your strategic/tactical situation.

As for the other questions, these are the environments in which I have found myself since busting my knuckles on machinery while hanging upside down on a submarine in the Navy. The plant was the best indicator of our success. As long as the plant made the submarine go faster when torpedoes were in the water and we made it back to tell the tale, we must have been doing something right. If the teams (especially my watch team) did not respond as required to the needs of the boat and the casualty in progress, I took that as my fault.

Since leaving the USS La Jolla, the Navy provided the means for me to complete a college degree in mechanical engineering. Concurrently (as shown in my job history), I was working in the semiconductor industry.

Being from the Nuclear Navy, I now have in depth experience not only in the operation and maintenance of turbines, valves, heat exchanges, chillers, boilers, HVAC, and complex system operations and reactions, I understood the theory of design behind them as well.

Do you need help?

Stop making me salivate here!

Allow me to find, quantify, and isolate your problem. I will give you options and recommendations. Let me lead you from the bottom by providing a "boots in the field" perspective, work with YOUR team, and recommend how to prioritize and execute solutions.

Let us systematically destroy any systematic failures you are experiencing!

How may I help you?
