Kirk Goldenberger is an engineer, entrepreneur and consultant and is the Owner and President of Thick Film Technologies Inc. (TFT). In 2005, building on over 20 years of experience in electronics and electro-ceramics manufacturing, Kirk founded TFT in his garage and since that time the company has moved twice and has grown into an internationally known supplier of thick film products with customers on 4 continents. Specializing in custom thick film heating and resistance products TFT has supplied products to the Aerospace, Industrial, Medical, Consumer and Research sectors. When not working Kirk likes to hike in the nearby North Cascade Mountains and write science fiction and horror short stories. Several of his works were published in the now defunct Wolf Creek Journal-it is not believed the publications of his stories and the demise of the publication are related.
