Location: Georgetown, TX
Website:

I have worked as VP of Dosimetry Operations for Radiation Detection Company since 1996. I'm married with 4 kids and 13 grandkids. We moved, with our company, in 2014 to the great state of Texas and are starting life anew...
My work history has varied. I started out as a machinist when I was 14...yes 14... I moved on to sales, metrology and now dosimetry. I also owned and operated a recording studio for just about 25 years. You will just have to imagine the stories :-)
Woodworking, to me, brings clarity. Forces me to concentrate on just on thing as I really prefer to not cut stuff off, again :-)

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
