I am still a consultant to the American transit industry for litigation, strategy and operations support. I have no intention of retiring. I live in Meadowbrook, PA and have two daughters who live elsewhere. I am also active in the Philadelphia area for environmental and sustainability engineering issues, historic preservation, cultural preservation of our region, and through my involvement with public transportation, as a regional advisor to the agencies and local governments, with revitalizing this region’s economy and improving access to public transportation for its citizens and businesses.
I have a B.S. in metallurgical engineering (now known as materials engineering) from Drexel, and an M.S. in both civil engineering and transportation engineering from Villanova, and am a licensed professional engineer in those fields and mechanical engineering. I also attended Penn under a special USDOT fellowship for the design, planning, and management of public transportation systems. I am a life member of ASM – The International Materials Society, and a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers. I serve on SEPTA’s Citizen Advisory Committee, representing the Montgomery County Commissioners.
