Work history (chronologically): I've been a stock boy, an Assistant Manager, a machinist, a factory lab tech, an Engineering tech, a Quality Engineer, a Production Foreman, and a Planning and Scheduling Manager. Away from big manufacturing since 2007, I continue to be a professional home design and plans producer, a builder of custom homes and light commercial (so far), pool builder, remodeler, and installer of anything in support of our retail store. We have owned and operated a Retail Home Center since 1997.
Hobbies: Playing Musician (guitar) and Recording Music (digital home studio mostly Roland), Registered Dog Breeder (Dobermans, Min Pins, Miniature Schnauzers, and Weimeraners over the years), Automotive improvement and restoration (project car is a 1981 Mazda RX-7 with Cartech Mariah complete wide body etc. etc.), carpentry and woodworking, computer builder, and spreader of the word on pool ionizers.
I have also been known to pull a leg every now and then.
