 My name is James Harris and this is my first year at BISNT. I come from a military family and grew up in So. Korea, California, Tennessee and Virginia.  I attended University of California, San Diego and got my Bachelor of Science, Electrical Engineering from UCSD.  After obtaining my BSEE, I was hired into Hughes Aircraft Company as a design engineer, specializing in Monolithic Microwave Integrated Components (MMIC’s).  HAC (Hughes Aircraft Company) was the premier Airborne Radar manufacturer at the time, and I worked on the designs of RADAR receivers (front end) for the F14, F15, and F18 jet fighters, as well as the B2 and other platforms.  Later as an engineering manager, I supervised 27 Engineers and development engineers (those with AA degrees).  As an R&D engineer, I was awarded several US patents.  As an engineering manager, one of my duties was to train engineers in corporate level math, and engineering sciences such as an “Introduction to RF and Microwaves” class.  I find teaching secondary school familiar, but just as challenging and even more rewarding.

On a personal level, I try to stay active as possible.  I’m an avid Backpacker and fly-fisherman.  I’ve climbed several mountains in the US, such as Mt Whitney, Mt Rainier, Mt San Jacinto as well as other.  I’m a double black diamond snow skier, water skier, long board surfer, volleyball player, body surfer and my present sport is golf.
