A native of New Jersey, George has worked in manufacturing since his teens, when he first discovered the fascinating world of machining at a neighbor’s garage shop. Having worked in a variety of shop settings over his career, George has found his most rewarding work takes place in the development of research projects and experimental manufacturing, first at SRI, Inc. in Princeton, New Jersey, and now here, at the University of Georgia. George takes pride in sharing his many years of practical experience in the machinist trade with those who are spearheading innovation in today’s high-tech world, and he is excited to be working with the engineering students, faculty and staff at UGA. In his spare time, George enjoys outdoor pursuits such as hiking and cycling, as well as spending time with his wife, three children and numerous family pets, including dogs, goats, and rabbits.
