I have been a resident of Maricopa County, Arizona since 1976. I was born and raised in the greater New York City area. I graduated from a northeastern college with a B.A. degree in Business Management. I also completed training at two vocational schools in New Jersey. At the first vocational school I completed training in electro-mechanical drafting and also an additional course in machine design. At the second vocational school I completed training in general industrial electronics and an additional course in solid state devices and logic circuitry. I just recently retired. For nearly 40 years I was a printed circuit board designer both as a direct employee and as a contractor for some of America's largest companies. I spent some of my career working in the defense industry (3 different firms) and held both NSA and DOD secret clearances. I also worked in the medical electronics industry, spent time working for several start-ups in silicon valley during the telecom boom, did automotive electronics for our largest auto manufacturer, and designed motherboards used in desk top computers for our largest microprocessor maker. For nearly 28 years of my career my work was done on computers. I was quite proficient using many different engineering level graphics software packages for both electronic and mechanical design. I have watched Mike Zullo's presentation regarding Obama's birth certificate and selective service card and read the software analysis done by several other experts. There is no doubt in my mind that not only is Obama's birth certificate a phony – it is a very poorly done phony.
