I’ll Play. For the last 8 years I’ve worked in the commercial HVAC/R field. I worked for a few years as a steel worker but after the plant closing then being bought and re-opened I decided that I wanted something more stable. The heating and A/C trade always interested me so I went back to school and after graduating I went to work for an entertainment company that produced Disney on Ice. I worked as a traveling Ice Engineer (just a nice way of saying that I was one of the guys that made the ice floors) and traveled all over the U.S. and several parts of the world. This got old fast and I moved back to the Chicago-Land area and went to work for a commercial service company.

I have no regrets about it because I have learned more than I ever thought I would. From a simple conveyor toaster to 1,000,000 BTU heaters, from small reach in coolers to large walk-in freezers and everything in between. Truth be told though I often wish I would have stayed in college and pursued my first degree in architecture.
