California Institute of Technology (Caltech) with a B.S. in
Science; Business courses at UCLA, Instructor in hi-tech manufacturing
techniques at USC and Stanford.
MILITARY EXPERIENCE: Graduated from radio mechanics school. Worked on
flight line, maintaining VHF and long wave communications equipment, LORAN
and radio compass on military aircraft. Transferred to Fourth Air Force
Headquarters in San Francisco. Trained as IBM Tabulating Machine Operator.
Worked in that
capacity until discharge.
EMPLOYMENT EXPERIENCE IN JAPAN: Twenty-nine years in Japan with "Long Term
Resident" Visa. Employed by Barclay & Co., Tokyo, Aug. 1971 to Nov. 1977.
Formed International Technical Trading, Inc. in 1978 and serve as its
President. INTEC imports consumer products from the OECD countries.
Also serve as President of Procurement Services International, Inc., formed
in 1981. Until July 1999, "PSI" provided translations of Standards issued
by the Government of Japan (GOJ), Telecommunications Interconnect Type
Approvals, etc. More importantly, PSI translated those government tenders
which are open to foreign competitive bidding under GATT Government
Procurement Agreement (GPA), starting in 1981 (subsequently WTO). PSI also
provided contract award notices, which became available under the 1987
revision of the GPA. PSI's tender and award notices were published daily in
The Supplement to the Official Journal of the EU (OJ-S) and OJ-S CD-ROM,
and posted on Tenders Electronic Daily (TED), an on-line database
maintained by the EU.
In 1982, established "Govpurch", first on-line database of Japanese
Government Procurement notices, available on Control Data (CDC). Among the
first users of Email from Japan when "message switching" was legalized in

production and formatting of translations by PSI-Japan and PSI-USA.
Functions include relational look-ups for agency names and addresses,
industrial product classifications (those "generic" CPV's which some
officials would like to omit from SLD's), etc. PSI's work went directly
into print in the Official Journal Supplement without verification (other
than one percent spot checks). PSI's quality is recognized as the best of
any organization formatting tenders for OJ-S. Our work is normally
"shipped" via Internet to the EU by 15:30 daily on the same date that it is
published in "Kampo" (the Official Gazette of The Government of Japan). It
was received in Luxembourg before the start of business the same calendar
day and in print in two to three days. (PSI-Japan has a large stake in the
stability of the Internet!)
As a direct result of PSI's integrity and its reliable, high quality work
over the prior fourteen years, in 1995 the EU appointed PSI as Sales Agent
for EU Official books, periodicals, CD-ROM's and data bases (such as TED).
