Farewell GLW

Way back, when I was a 20 year old electronics student at ITT Tech, I was looking for a job at a company where I could possibly put my newly acquired skills to work. I found an ad in the paper for electronics assembly workers and figured it was close enough and so I applied for a job. Maybe I could work my way into the testing department or something I thought. The company was called Harrison Systems back then and I started in production assembling the components that make up a mixing console. After I graduated from ITT in 1989 I asked to be given a chance to work in the testing department. There weren’t any openings in testing, however, Dave Harrison wanted to move on to some other projects and needed someone to maintain software for the Series X and I was offered a shot. Apparently my work was impressive enough, as I skipped the testing department and landed straight in engineering.

I worked with a lot of great people and worked on some very cool projects during the last 15 years at Harrison which is now GLW. I’ve spent basically my whole adult life working at that place and I’ll miss it and all of the people there very much. But now it’s time for me to move on. I wish the company and all of the people there all the best. And I want to especially thank everyone that took a chance on me and gave me the opportunities that have gotten me where I am today. I am deeply indebted.
