Bud

Meet Bud: Husband, father, and grandfather. He is a Senior Project Leader for The Aerospace Corporation in his day job, where he is involved with systems engineering, risk management, database design, and cybersecurity. Aerospace had a big role in the history of GPS, but that was way before he started working there. Bud is also a retired Lt Col, U.S. Air Force.

He is a barefoot runner, although if surfaces are rough he will put something on for protection. Long-time student and practitioner of the health and fitness principles of Dr. Phil Maffetone. He was fortunate to be able to attend the New York City Barefoot Run in 2011, and it was a life changing experience. He crossed-paths with many of the luminaries in the movement, including Dr. Mark. He played lots of softball and volleyball, but now focuses his energies on running, walking, and hiking. One milestone during his health journey is that he lost 30 pounds between 2009 to 2010, mainly by cutting sugar intake, AND he's kept it off.
Born in San Francisco and raised in Northern California. He's a fan of the SF 49ers, SF Giants, and the Golden State Warriors. Big fan of jazz musician Diana Krall, too. Hobbies include photography and gardening.
Thanks for being a part of our Thunder Squad and inspiring us all, Bud!
