First job out of graduate school! Amazing experience (I was the industrial hygienist for the Navy SEALs on the West Coast and got to wear body armor!).
But oye...the regulations. My first experience with bureaucracy...
Started my disdain for wordy regulations early in my career. I jumped into the app craze and started an auditing company with some friends to help people conduct field audits.
(sooo many ways it could be improved, but it was a good way to test the waters).
I landed my dream job working with researchers in the Department of Energy who were building the future of energy.
My first experience working with the hydrogen industry (which still felt like it was a long way off).
H2 @ Scale...Toyota Mirai...all of a sudden, things begin to pick up speed in the hydrogen world. Project begin to come through our doors faster than ever and we struggle to keep up - but ever the bureaucrat, I keep the researchers in line.
Omitz is finally born! Taking inspiration from Strunk and White's Elements of Style,
regulations will never be the same after we're done with them.
