I was born and raised in the Detroit area. Attending the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor , I received a master ’s degree in mathematics in 1993. After some years of work in industry as a supervisory and management consultant, I changed fields—earning a PhD (philosophy) from the University of Bath, UK, in 2001. At present I am a Lecturer in the Humanities Department at UM -Dearborn. I have been active in the environmental field for several years, as a writer, researcher, and speaker.
It's Time to Challenge the Rules
I am a registered Professional Engineer. A professional problem-solver. A college graduate, nearly twenty years' experience, and credentialled by the state of Michigan. I live in The Motor City, a bustling place of industry and manufacturing. Not an outpost, not a resort, not a small farming town, but the center of the American auto industry , through which flows a billion dollars daily. Were you to believe the hype from media pundits, government officials in Lansing or Washington, and high school guidance counselors, you'd think that I am one of the most employable people in the nation. The right degree, the right experience, the right credentials, the right location. Engineers, they say, are in high demand . They can write their own tickets and expect high salaries, signing bonuses, and more. Truth is, incomes are no better than automobile assembly line workers and I suffer juegos de friv chronic unemployment at the whims of corporate management .
It all started on Mackinac Island in 1958 . I've lived in Illinois , California, and Ohio, then returned to Michigan after graduating from college , settling in Ferndale.
A third-generation American, I earned an engineering degree and went on to become a registered professional engineer - a Professional Problem Solver - with a track record which includes electric, hybrid and solar powered automobiles, nuclear powerplants, sustainable energy, and vegetable oils for Diesel engines. I'm also a licensed and instrument-rated private pilot and has been a volunteer medical transport pilot.

Barred from the public airwaves by a public television station, Campbell spoke instead to the press and crowd outside the studio on his campaign’s message of “Peace, Jobs, and Justice”.
