My formal education is electrical engineering and have worked the majority of my career on the Space Shuttle.  I came in after Challenger was lost and was part of an employment surge to re-establish the Space Shuttle program.  100+ launches later…

And with the retirement of the Space Shuttle, a new fantastic opportunity presented itself.  Check it out here:  Resource Prospector.

And coaching soccer came in somewhere in the middle of all that Shuttle stuff – totally exciting because of the non-technical challenges.   Found a small club to be a part of — Rockledge Soccer Club — a great home town club.  Unfortunately, we lost the hometown Rockledge Soccer Club in a well-intended but poorly thought out merger in 2013.

And it’s 2016 and after resisting for so many years, I put down the tribal competitiveness and joined what I feel is the best soccer club in my area, Space Coast United.  A bit more structure and quite a bit more cohesiveness between the teams.  It is also lead well by a progressive board of directors and an effective technical director.

The common thread?  It’s all about the people…

    Hi Kevin,

    Good meeting you and Bill at Estudiantes this week. My son, Ryan, has been meeting some of your boys on the campus at night for a little soccer tennis. Good luck with the rest of your trip.
