Your Bio

My name is Tom Ames. I live in Fort Worth, Texas. I have been working at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company since 2001. Before that, I was an Electrical and Computer Engineering student at The University of Texas at Austin. I decided to earn my BSEE after my 6-year stint as a CTM in the US Navy from 1989-1995. I was enlisted then, but I was commissioned in July of 2004 and am serving in the Navy Reserve.

I earned a MS in engineering management at Southern Methodist University and graduated in December of 2009. When I'm not working, studying, or being a Sailor, I like to meet my friends in the Fort Worth Texas Exes (UT Austin alumni association) for happy hours or game watching. I also enjoy travel when I have enough money and vacation saved up. My favorite musical groups are U2, Dave Mathews Band, Seal, P!nk, Tool, Robert Earl Keen, Dwight Yoakam, and most everyone in between those genres.

I have a profile set up at Facebook if you'd like to read more about me there. The photos posted in my galleries are from all collected memories of my personal, professional, and military endeavors. I hope you enjoy looking through them. If you like the smugmug site, you can start one of your own and get $5 off if you use my coupon code: h1l3ef8HgQA8w.
