Went to work for a small Electrical Engineering firm call Beckman’s for a short time and on June17, 1968 went to work for General Telephone of California as an Outside Plant Cable Splicer in Indio, California. On September 27, 1969 married my lovely wife (Brenda) of 34 years and we move back to Hemet in 1970 still working for General Telephone where we still live. While with General Telephone I have been a Cable Splicer, Cable Pressure and Cable Maintenance, an Outside Plant Engineering Fielder, an Engineer and in February of 1984 became an Outside Plant Network Planner. Have spent 35 years (as of June 17, 2003) in the telephone industry and have seen many name changes, we are now Verizon of California.
As a Planner I develop plans, initiate and control new technologies, strategies and network facility deployments and enhancements for an area called the Tri-Valley which includes the Moreno Valley, Hemet/San Jacinto Valley and the Temucala Valley. The Temucala Valley includes the cities of Temucala and Murrieta which are two of the fastest growing cities in the nation. I am responsible for the modernization, timing and sizing of Network Access facility provisioning, Investment alternative evaluations and related capital budget development and control. Went to night school while working for General Telephone and received an Associate Science Degree (AS) in Business Management from Mt. San Jacinto College in 1974.
