The Toro Company


​My career in engineering has focused primarily on off-road [agriculture/vocational] vehicles.  In later years I have worked in detail at the component level, emphasizing hydraulics, hardware, and data management of component-level purchased items.  I serve SAE's FCCTC on its steering committee, on three FCCTC subcommittees, served two terms on the SAE Tech Standards Board, and also serve ISO TC 131 as time allows.​  I work in an environment that has shown growing interest in the many benefits of standardization, while also balancing the need for corporate and [premium] product identity.
