The Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History has announced that Salvatore “Tory” Milazzo and Wayne Rosing have joined its Board of Trustees.

Milazzo is a senior portfolio manager at HighMark Capital Management, Union Bank’s wholly owned registered investment adviser. He oversees investment portfolios for individuals, nonprofit endowments and institutional clients.

Milazzo is a Chartered Financial Analyst charterholder and has worked in the investment business since 2004. A graduate of the McCallie School in Chattanooga, Tenn., Milazzo received his bachelor’s degree from Colgate University in New York.

He has had a lifelong interest in the outdoors and during his high school and college years, he participated in and led scholastic outdoor programs. After college, he guided adventure seekers as a mountain guide in Wrangell St. Elias National Park, Alaska.

Milazzo sits on the board of St. Francis Foundation of Santa Barbara. He has volunteered with the Santa Barbara County Search and Rescue Team. He is active with the local CFA Society and has served on the SBMNH Investment Committee since 2014.

A native of Alabama, Milazzo and his family moved to Santa Barbara in 2008 from Jackson Hole, Wyo.

Rosing’s training is in math, physics and astronomy. He is a computer engineer and has been involved with programming, telescope engineering, and computer electronics and optical design since high school.

His career has spanned engineering leadership roles at Digital Equipment Corp., Apple and Sun Microsystems. Most recently, Rosing was senior vice president of engineering at Google from 2000 through 2005.

In 1992, he founded Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network, Inc. (LCOGT) in Goleta.

At LCOGT, Rosing and his staff of engineers and scientists are developing scores of 1 and 0.4-meter aperture telescopes to be placed in various locations around the world.

The telescopes will be used for scientific research and will be available for educational use by "learners of all ages."

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
