He is a West Point graduate who served in a variety of engineering positions in his long and distinguished career.
Takala has also served as Sheriff since November  2006.  He also holds a master’s degree from MIT in physics.  
Takala first came to Los Alamos in 1986 to work at the Los Alamos National Laboratory while still in the Army.
He has been a Los Alamos National Laboratory employee since 1996 and is currently the Accelerator Operations Manager.
