Bruce demonstrated an aptitude for technical interests as a youth. He was very interested in the communication field, got a citizen's band radio license in high school and became a amateur radio operator over 3 years ago. He started flying airplanes at the age of 20, and was hired by Western Airlines in 1966. Western Airlines then merged with Delta Air Lines in April, 1987. Bruce has continued his flying career and finished his aviation career as a Boeing 777-200 Captain for Delta flying to England, Ireland, Europe, and to the Middle East. In his airline career, Bruce spent 36 of his 38+ aviation career years in the air safety programs for the Air Line Pilots Association, and for both Western and Delta.
Bruce spent the several years doing aviation safety seminars for the WINGS program that is sponsored by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration). He has also acted as a liaison between commercial and general aviation for the air lines and the FAA.
Bruce moved to Salt Lake City, Utah in 1978 and became interested in computers. His first computer was an Intel board that had 1k of total memory. It was nice for typing. He then pioneered the sales of Apple computers in Utah. This was when the Apple computer was just a board without a case. The only mass storage available was a cassette tape recorder. He studied computer language, became a programmer in his spare time and wrote various programs for business. Bruce also started a satellite distribution company in Salt Lake City in the early 80's and designed CATV, MATV and SMATV systems.
Bruce, being born and raised Jewish notes that his day of reckoning came several years ago when -- while on a layover in Kalispell, Montana -- was introduced to the Lord by a woman who was just looking to find out more about Jewish religious traditions. Through much conversation and study, Bruce finally found the Lord on August 3, 1997 and is now, in his words, a 'completed Jew.' Since that time, he has been studying, learning and is now teaching others about the Lord. He attained one of his goals, to each about the 'life and times of Christ Jesus' using only the Old Testament. He became interested in the creation/evolution debate while attending a mini seminar several years ago. The desire to dive into the debate was further sparked when he attended a Steeling the Mind of America conference in Colorado in the summer of 2000. He spent the next year developing, and continues to develop the information needed to bring the truth of creation to others.
Bruce has, and continues to study under scholars including Chuck Missler, Ken Ham, Dr. Gary Parker and several others. He has completed study courses in theology, and is continuing his studies through courses available through Liberty University and Focus On the Family.
