My name is Paul Sand. I am a semi-retired computer software engineer. I have been playing and working with electronics and computers since the mid 1950’s. My experience goes back to the days of electronic data processing (EDP), analog computers and digital computers that still used vacuum tubes. I developed the first operating systems for micro-processors long before Bill Gates or Steve Jobs. Before the micro-processor was developed, I built my own central processing units (CPUs) and the world’s first personal computer.
I previously served on my local volunteer fire department and have served 4 terms on my local city council. I am also a carpenter and I built homes for my family in my spare time and on weekends. I have a wife, an ex-wife who is the mother of my three grown children, and three grandchildren.
As a systems analyst, it is my job to understand complex problems and design simple solutions. I specialize in coding ultra-reliable systems for industrial, biotech, military, and wired/wireless communication applications and have a working knowledge of all science and engineering disciplines, and all business and economic models.
