About

Well, I've got wide ranging experience.

I grew up on a small farm. This means I learned to be resourceful, and learned a lot of different skills related to construction, farming, animal husbandry etc.

I spent 10 years in the US Navy on Submarines. Focused on electronics. Learned hydraulics and pneumatics, how to read prints and specs in order to design testing procedures for SUBSAFE work.

Trained as an instructor. I've taught everything from policy and procedures, to technical electrical, electronics, hydraulics, pneumatics, and mechanical subject matter.

I have some experience programming in VB, JAVA, ASP.net, C#, MYSQL and SQL. This is limited, I do not consider myself an expert, but I did develop a CRM solution before that was really a thing, back in 1995 on Lotus Notes that was used for about 15 years before being replaced. I'd say I can hold my own for not doing this as primary work.

I have specifically always worked in electronics.

I've got CNC machine tool experience on numerous platforms: Mills, Lathes, Grinders, EDM, Tube benders, Box makers and others. Makes: Fanuc, Hitachi, Cincinnatti, Bridgeport, Nakamura, Hamai, Toyoda, Milltronics, Roders, Takisawa, Mitsubishi, and ONA. I've personally rebuilt CNC machines including spindles and drives. Designed, or aided in the design, of numerous machines/mods to machines. Designed testing procedures for machine and line POC.

Built the service department at Box on Demand (now Westrock) from nothing.

With regard to home and farm there isn't anything home I haven't repaired installed or refurbished. This includes motors and transmissions in vehicles (cars, trucks, tractors)

I also own and operate a small trucking company, and am a CDL holder and spent 5 years driving too. Tanker, doubles/triples, and HAZMAT certified. Spent significant time hauling crude oil in ND in the Bakken.

So the range of experience and hands on knowledge is pretty broad.
