A Holocaust survivor, he emerged from a war ravaged Europe, emigrated to Israel, became a paratroop officer and then came to America.

In America he taught in the fledging field of Computer Science and then created a number of innovative solutions to difficult problems and eventually became CEO of high-tech companies that he founded.

  • Became a Professor of Operations Research (1966)
  • I was founder and CEO of high-tech companies based on patented technologies invented by me and my staffs.  The projects served ADP, Air Force, American Express, AT&T, Burroughs, CBS, Citibank, Exxon, IBM, Siemens (and others)
  • Spent nearly seven years in the post-Gorbachev empire working on major Russian communication and resource companies with detours to Ukraine and Bulgaria.

I was a Senior Consultant to the Defense Enterprise Fund (part of Global Partners Ventures, supported by the U.S. Congress)

Married Christina Troller – the daughter of a world class German Scientist.  She converted to Judaism and her father disinherited her. 

She is a highly regarded information scientist.  She held important positions at GE’s Nuclear Production Operations in Hanford and nuclear research at Knolls Atomic.  She held management positions at CBS and Sternberg’s technology companies.
