In 1980, the president of the company asked me, "You're an English major, right?" He needed someone to serve as editor of a complicated application process to secure licenses to operate cellular telecommunications networks in major metropolitan areas in the U.S. In 1982, our small company filed applications for Washington, DC; Baltimore, MD and Tampa, FL, each of which ran to about 5,000 pages. My job was to collate the engineering, legal, marketing and financial exhibits into one coherent document. It was an incredible education process that started my career in wireless telecom. Invaluable!
