Scott Sullivan

Scott Sullivan is the author of “Virtual LM” and “Virtual Apollo.” He received his Associates Degree in Computer Aided Design and mechanical drafting from ITT Technical Institute in Phoenix and he has worked for companies such as McDonnell Douglas Helicopter Company, Intel, and Honeywell. In 1993 Scott wrote and illustrated a nationally distributed comic book entitled The Bad Penny. He created the comic book art using a CAD program designed for architectural drafting called AutoCAD. Scott was also running his own business creating patent drawings for various companies and law firms, creating all of Rayovac's patent art for a two-year period. Scott moved to product design in the engineering consulting industry, where one of the high points was getting to go to Warner Brothers studios and set up several sets of futuristic looking office furniture my company had designed that was to be used on one of the key sets of the motion picture A.I. directed by Steven Spielberg. In writing both of his space books, he first created models to use for his designs. Scott has been interested in the space program since he was a child and has watched nearly all of the manned launches of the Apollo program. He started “Virtual Apollo” to teach myself about all of the intricacies of the design and construction of the spacecraft. When completed, Scott Sullivan will have four books on America's manned spacecraft. He is currently self-employed as a freelance mechanical designer and writer.
