Over the years, Michael Sieleman has concretely established a reputation as a goal-driven professional with the strong determination to do the best job possible in any given instance through his deep-down flair for innovation. Moreover, with his genuine and creative concepts, Michael has consistently exemplified results-oriented approach in finding solutions to various challenges that his chosen fields of expertise have entailed.
Michael’s educational background featured a unique combination of engineering and artistic curriculums. He studied at the University of Iowa and took up courses in History, Philosophy, and Literature.
Conversely, he earned his Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering as well as a Bachelor’s degree in English concurrently at the University of Maine. Additionally, Michael attended several trainings, including the Carpenter Apprentice Program (CAP) wherein he finished a four-year apprenticeship and successfully received a certification as a Journeyman Carpenter and Millwright; and a seminar conducted by SPD Corporation on Protective Coordination: Theory and Application.
Michael’s career started at General Dynamics as an electrical engineer, wherein he was responsible for organizing numerous engineering-related functions intended for administering lead-ship design and production support for building Arleigh Burke Class Destroyers for the U. S. Navy. As a high-potential worker for his invention of an Integrated Protective Coordination System algorithm and Advanced Fault Protection Device, along with earning a High Performance Award for being the company’s only engineer to deliver 100% of Engineering Change Proposals on schedule, Michael was subsequently promoted to Senior Electrical and Program Engineer. As such, working with a team of engineers from General Dynamics on an advanced project for the navy, he created a new architecture for an AC Integrated Power System (IPS) that in terms of technical delivery, reliability, cost, and each additional key measure of performance as defined by the Navy, bested the system designed by his company’s rival by more than 30%. Likewise, he was the man behind the US Patent No. US Patent No. 6,650,969 B1: Electrical Fault Protection System.
In 2004, Michael temporarily shifted from his usual work to another field—writing. During the time he was self-employed as a writer, he was able to write a novel entitled ‘Winter Harbor’. Although fascinated to write works of art, Michael still found the need to have another job, this time as a salesman in a car dealing establishment in Falmouth, Maine. In 2006, he took another leap professional-wise, this time as a yacht carpenter and joiner at Lyman Morse Boatbuilding where he served as finish carpenter for a fifty-two foot sailboat and a ninety-foot motor yacht. Missing the analysis, problem solving, and challenge of engineering, Michael served as an electrical engineer at Power Engineers Inc., where he dealt with specific duties on utility substation design, protection and control, and SCADA communication. Recently, Michael ventured once again as a self-employed publisher and writer, establishing his own publishing company, the Guardian Stone Publishing. He productively wrote two works, entitled ‘Hippie from Iowa’ and ‘A History of the World in a Single Sentence’, both of which have received acclamations from readers.
Throughout the diverse career, Michael has continually demonstrated his exceptional ability to look at things differently through stimulating circumstances. What further separates him from other engineers is his innate ability to look at challenges from a unique perspective through which he is able to translate processes in much better and more efficient methods toward improvement. During the course of these jobs, Michael has proved himself worthy of the several accomplishments he has attained. From high-profile designing advanced power systems for the United States Navy to simple projects, like developing a faster and more accurate parts lists for utility substations, to producing inspirational pieces of writing and even assembling portions of vessels, Michael has undoubtedly taken a long and enduring way in the fast-paced and competitive environment of experts. But with his innovative mind power and ethical philosophies in life, geared with a strong leadership ability and communication skills, nothing seems impossible for this man.
Today, Michael is actively on the lookout for his next professional challenge and is hoping now to constructively break new grounds in the engineering realm.
