After all the years of attending ASNT Meetings, I now have the honor of being your Chairman for the 2020-2021 Year. I am humbled by the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of our past chairpersons who were outstanding individuals and whom I regard with the highest respect.
With the situation going on in the world presently, there will be many difficulties. However, I see no reason that we would not to be able to overcome these challenges with the team of high caliber people who that will be assisting me this year.
I encourage each and every one of you to attend the meetings – either through virtual media or in person when permissible again.
Involvement in Nondestructive Testing has been an exciting career path for me. I started this path as a naïve young man who thought “Wow, they have books that tell you what to do!” when I first set foot in the Navy’s NDT school. I was intrigued with the NDT process and spent a great portion of my career gaining NDT experience while working the U.S. Navy ship and submarine repairs. This basis of knowledge and experience in NDT helped me to transition to the Aerospace Industry where I have thrived as an NDT Level III for the recent…not saying how many… years.
My career journey started in the NDT Lab onboard U. S. Navy Submarine repair ship where I obtained my NDT Level III/Examiner Certifications and then went on to be an Instructor at the Navy’s NDT School at the Naval Station here in San Diego.
I remember one NDT Speaker talking about some of the different (maybe even weird) things they did or inspected and I can say the same. I look back on my ‘Sea Stories’ fondly and look forward to sharing them with you while serving as the new Chairman.

Dear Fellow San Diego Section Members,
It has been my pleasure and a privilege to serve as Chairman of the Board this past, 2019-2020 fiscal year and what a year it has been. The challenge with COVID-19 has changed our “normal.” Being distant from family and friends as given everyone a new look on life. One lesson I’ve taken away from the current times is the reminder that we need to cherish everything we have because we don’t know what is in store for us tomorrow.
As a Section, many new adaptations were needed to continue our day to day operations and I am proud of everyone involved who helped with the changes!
The San Diego Section of ASNT is an outstanding organization that has a long and distinguished 64-year history, supporting, promoting and protecting the major industries in the San Diego area.
In this next fiscal year, 2020-2021, the San Diego Section of ASNT will celebrate a significant milestone, turning 65 years old (1955-2021). There is so much to celebrate and we hope our members are excited to be a part of it!
In closing, I wish the Section continued success and I would encourage all members to make the decision to get involved, to support and promote the work of the ASNT San Diego Section.
Let the next chapter begin! The effectiveness of the Section depends on you.
ASNT San Diego Section
