Howie is one of the smartest people I know; aside from his degrees confirming it, I've always been impressed by the speed with which Howie a ... ssimilates information and converts it into action. He's the best of the science and engineering archetypes: deeply analytical and data driven, while being laser-focused on the applicability of the science to building solutions! I endorse Howie in the strongest form, and frankly will likely work with him in the near future!
