1994 to present: Instructor of Chemistry at Cal Poly University, Pomona, specializing in Coatings Science. I teach a 1-year course in Coatings Science, resulting in an industry-recognized certificate in Coatings Science. I have presented several technical papers at the annual Federation of Societies for Coatings Technology convention, including papers on coating stability, color change with change of viewing angle, environmental problems in the coatings industry, and problems associated with overspray on bridges. Two graduate students have earned their Masters degree in Chemistry under my guidance, and more are being planned. Over 20 senior chemistry students have completed their senior projects in Chemistry under my direction. These projects are coatings projects covering the whole spectrum of coatings science. Examples are freeze/thaw stability at zero voc, dirt pickup from waterborne emulsion coatings, correlation of lab work to plant and field experience, coating of oil base primer with waterborne emulsion topcoats, swimming pool coatings and adhesion promoters performance testing.
University support as well as private Consulting for Industry projects is an important part of my position. I am presently working on projects involving all phases of development of waterborne coatings for several Coatings Industry clients. These projects cover selection of polymer to match the coating condition, selection of pigments to work in the selected polymer, performance at the clients’ coating line, manufacturing techniques, and in-can stability. In my capacity as a consultant I have been retained, and have testified, as an expert witness in numerous civil lawsuits and two criminal lawsuits involving coatings defects, application defects, corrosion protection, raw material omissions, color matching problems, color changing problems, attempted murder and murder.
1958 to 1994: Past work experience that has enabled me to obtain this position is as Operations Manager for a medium size paint company, and as a paint lab technician and lab manager for three large paint companies. As a fulltime consultant, I developed many coatings for coatings companies and resolved coatings disputes in the field. I also initially worked as a painter for a painting crew in 1958, which gives me added insight into paint problems.

PROFESSIONAL TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE
I was President of the Los Angeles Society for Coatings Technology for two terms. I have also held several Chairperson Positions during my 25+ years in this organization, including Technical Committee Chair, Education Committee Chair, Publicity Committee Chair, Library Committee Chair, and Manufacturing Committee Chair.
Seminars attended have been on all aspects of coatings science. I have not wanted to overspecialize in one type of coating to the exclusion of all others. Therefore, I have interest in, and have studied, and have organized nearly 100 seminars for UV coatings, aerosol spray coatings, powder coatings, automotive coatings, coil coatings, artist colors, wood coatings, and concrete coatings, as well as the more familiar Architectural and Industrial Maintenance coatings. I spoke at a seminar at UCLA on the environmentally safe way to manufacture coatings. Also, I presented a seminar at UC Riverside on the hazards and control of lead paint remediation to all the UC Environmental Managers.
I have taken numerous industry classes at the annual paint convention on polymers, crosslink density, waterborne formulation, inks, sealants, caulking, instrumental analysis and furniture finishes.
The Getty museum asked me to present my studies on mural coatings at a conference of world wide muralists at the Getty. I am presently the only coatings scientist on their committee to research ways to restore and protect murals all over the world.
I also serve on the South Coast Air Quality Management District committee for Zero VOC coatings evaluation. In support of “greener” coatings, the
SCAQMD asked me to be on a panel to present my opinions concerning the future of coatings to approximately 500 environmental advocates.
MSDS generation: Having studied biology for 2 years in college enabled me to be the MSDS leader in every company I worked for. Then, my courses in Hazardous Materials Management, especially Industrial Toxicology, gave me the ability to write MSDSs clearly and succinctly, conveying accurate health warnings on all types of coatings and other materials. As a consultant, and as an employee of Info-Tox, I have written thousands of MSDSs for various well-known companies using BatchMaster batchmaking process software. As new formats have been developed by Canada, the European Union and Australia, I have easily mastered them and written them in the proper style because I am so familiar with the materials and their hazards.
