Mr. Driskell has lived in Oregon his whole life. He was born in Hermiston and raised in Lagrande. He went to engineering school in Klamath Falls and became a Mechanical Engineer. Following that, he moved to Eugene, Oregon, for his first job working as an engineer producing Hard drives for the computer industry. That manufacturing got moved to Malaysia, so he got a job in small job-shop that produced laser mirrors and lenses using a process known as Ion Beam Sputtering ( He says he won't bore us with the details:).). While working for that small company, he got to work on a government contract for a project called the Airborne Laser, which is a laser mounted in a 747 that can shoot down missiles at a couple hundred miles away. He then went back to school and got in the Masters program at Eastern Oregon University to become a teacher. And here he is.
