I graduated from Cornell University 30 years ago this weekend. Despite the fact that our crimson brethren (and now my family), refer to it as a “safety school”, Cornell was a wonderful place to attend college – and had a huge influence on my formation as an adult, professional, and friend. As a work-study student and engineering major in a house full of liberal arts students (can you say 8:00 am classes?), this may have been the place I learned about work-life balance. And lots of other things that are NSFW.

Also, it was having Cornell on my resume that probably got me an interview with HMMH – since Ted Baldwin is also an alumnus. It was my intention to work for a few months and move to Colorado. Who knew 30 years later I’d still be here?

ERAU Is Pushing the Envelope Yet Again!

Graduates of my alma mater, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU), have a reputation for ‘pushing the envelope’ in more than one way… The Small Aircraft Transportation System (SATS) was one of those forward thinking ideas that only a bunch of aviation nuts could come up with and commit to with boundless enthusiasm. And boy did we ever!  Here is an article on another example of ERAU pushing for innovation: developing electric propulsion systems to reduce noise and emissions:

HMMH wishes to congratulate Flavio Leo, deputy director of aviation planning and strategy for Massport, who was honored at the White House today as a Champion of Change! HMMH has worked with Flavio for many years – it’s great to see Flavio recognized for all that he does to help Massport be a better neighbor.
