John is the President and Co-founder of Aerospace Research and Development Group, LLC, developing new technologies, as well as consulting with businesses to help them with R & D, design processes, product feasibility and evaluation services. He serves as the Managing Director of Design & Motion, a technical journal of CAD/CAM/CAE software. John is a USAF veteran of Desert Storm, and holds numerous certifications in airframe and composite fabrication and design, as well as other software certifications. He is also the current Secretary of the Northwest Florida section of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and a member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). When not working (which is rare) he enjoys his family, studying mechanical and aeronautical engineering, and practicing his Japanese language skills. Once in awhile, John will sneak out to his machine shop and get his CNC mill / lathe warmed up (until someone finds out he's not really working). If John could be anywhere, he'd be flying with the people he loves.
