About George

I'm an engineer working as a manager in the world's largest nuclear utility. I have had nothing but success with ex-military personnel in my new hires, and my industry is looking for such personnel in a variety of roles. In my spare time, I referee soccer and basketball, write for magazines, ride bicycles, fix things, and enjoy spending time with my wife.
