Tom Alfaro (Major, USAFR, Ret.) I have driven, fixed, flown, and navigated many kinds of real vehicles on land, at sea and in the air. As an industrial designer (B.S. Industrial Design, Western Washington University) my best work occurs when I combine my military experience with my creative skills --- as I have for many years supporting government and commercial clients as an operations research analyst and concept developer in the Washington, D.C. area. In the future, I am interested in doing more creative work in support of interactive simulations and games.
