   I have been working for EDS for since 1973.  The first 12 were actually with General Motors before GM acquired EDS from Ross Perot.  I served for many years in the role of a Project Management Consultant and travelled around the country providing instruction, coaching, mentoring, and practitioning in the area of project management.  Since Mar11, I have been working from home on an internal company audit response program and really miss both the travel and the contact with the end client.

   My wife Jennifer and I have been married since 20May72.  We have a daughter born 15Mar76 and a son born 26Mar78.  Janelle earned a Master's degree in Psychology at Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, and completed a year of doctoral studies before accepting a position as a counseling coordinator at a private agency that oversees the care of foster children.  She received her undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Texas satellite campus in San Antonio.  Jarett received his law degree from the University of Texas in Austin and passed the Texas Bar Exam in 2003.  He received a double major in Business and French from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.  Jarett spent the summer of 1996 working in London; the 1998-1999 school year studying in Nancy, France; and the summer of 2000 working in Strasbourg, France.  He is fluent in French and conversational in Italian.

After getting married, Jennifer and I spent a year in Palo Alto, California; a year in Minneapolis, Minnesota; eleven years in Flint, Michigan; two years in Warren, Ohio; and have now been in Houston, Texas since Aug87.  The children were with us for the last two moves only.

    My involvement outside of work and family has been restricted to Boy Scouts and Genealogical research.  In Scouting, I have been active at a district and council level in various positions for since 1992.  In May 2002, I was presented the Silver Beaver award by the Sam Houston Council.  In genealogy, I have been cited as a co-contributor in three books on French-Canadian ancestral story collections.  I am currently working on a name look-up reference work for early French-Canadian ancestery.
