Mountain and the communications network controlling our nuclear weapons arsenal. As
President of Citadel Information Group and of ISSA-LA, he brings a wealth of experience to
business, government, and the not-for-profit organizations.

15 years teaching university mathematics. He has published more than a dozen papers in
