A relative of Johnny Weissmuller, an Olympic swimmer and actor best known for playing Tarzan in films of the 1930s and 1940s, George brings focus and endurance to the workforce and development team.

Although he doesn’t call out to his students with a Tarzan yell, George leads his classroom by calling upon his experience as a naval flight officer of 23 years. If he appears to bob and weave during classes, don’t be alarmed; he was also boxer in college.

George is a graduate of the United States Test Pilot School and has more than 1788 flight hours in 23 type/model series aircraft. His experience in test and evaluation and as the lead for multiple Integrated Product Teams in three NAVAIR program offices makes him the perfect candidate for development and courseware instruction of classes such as, Systems Engineering for Integrated Product Team Leads; Contracting for Integrated Product Team Leads; The Integrated Product Team Lead – The Next Step; and Financial Management for Integrated Product Team Leads.

Interaction with students while passing them practical acquisition knowledge is what George enjoys the most about teaching. When students see the value in course content and provide positive feedback, George knows he has done something right.
