After my Ph.D., and a semester teaching
for Philadelphia University, I wanted to explore software development
some more. I met Jack Garczynski, Vice President of Peripheral Dynamics Inc., a small manufacturing
company on the outskirts of Philadelphia.
PDI was rushing to develop its very first scanner. I liked the challenge and wanted
to be part of it. I enjoyed the casual yet busy atmosphere at PDI and the opportunity
to be creative and explore the imaging field.
I learned a lot at PDI. As principal software engineer, there was a lot to do. From
the low level drivers, to the processing itself to the test application, I was able
to cover a lot of ground.
Imaging is a fascinating yet challenging field.
I am grateful to all the great folks at PDI for the years I worked there, Steve
Wilcox, Larry Hyer, Graham Gross, Jack Garczynski, and many many others.
For the past 25 years, prior to my retirement in 2006, I was Vice-President of
Engineering, and a member of the Board of Directors of Peripheral Dynamics, Inc.
Peripheral Dynamics is a major manufacturer of electornic equipment and document
scanners for the gaming, banking, voting and educational markets.
Helen Loeb is a professional, conscientious, a team player and easy to work with.
She was held in high esteem by our entire engineering and software development
staff. She works hard, comes up with timely recommendations, and she is
constantly updating her skills. Helen would fit well with any software team
requiring precise and timely results.
