I am enclosing my resume for your review. I have 30 years experience in power generation with 7 years combustion turbines and 23 years in the nuclear industry. I would be very interested in discussing the positions available with your company.

I have some 35 years experience in the fields of Instrumentation & Controls, Electrical Systems and Operations. I have been involved with Start-Up/ Test, and Commissioning of several commercial nuclear power plants as well as the National Enrichment Facility.

I have performed set-point calculations; developed Technical Specifications relating to Instrumentation & Controls, routinely research FSARs, Boundary Documents, and procedure writing, planning, and modifications.

As a consultant to TVA, Areva, Louisiana Power Systems, Southern Company, Westinghouse, Commonwealth Edison, Missouri Power, and Virginia Power among others clients, I have developed a rapport with customers and vendors.

I have had a broad exposure and experiences in troubleshooting instrumentation, electrical, and mechanical systems in power generation environments. I have been involved in the engineering, design, construction, start-up/pre-op, operational, and power upgrades. Duties included: system device layout, system programming and commissioning, testing, electronics, determining systems parameters, set-points, Instrumentation & Control, DCS systems and Safety Analysis Reports, Technical Specification, and Design Basis documentation. Additionally, I am familiar with GE MARK IV, MARK V and MARK VI as well as Foxboro I/A, Allen Bradley, Delta V and other DCS systems as well as Smartplant by Intergraph and Microsoft Office products.
