Basic Information

About markfitz
In my 20's, I was a motorcycle mechanic in Southern California. I did some amateur dirt-track racing. 360cc Yamaha, later a 750cc Triumph. I got pretty good at building engines and started a one-man shop specializing in flow-testing and modifying cylinder heads. When I was 29 years old, I went back to college, graduating with a BSEE. I moved to Arizona and went to work for Motorola/General Dynamics. After 31 years there, I retired as a Member of The Technial Staff, with 9 patents and 2 engineering awards.

Farting around in the workshop, golf, travel, Roman history
