I have a strong passion for problem solving and utilizing tools at hand. In my past work experience, I have done everything from batch file processing to systems integration and automation to designing and constructing antenna mounts to implementing a multi-county wireless network, complete with monitoring system.
I'm not afraid to admit that I don't know everything. When I encounter a problem that I cannot solve, I am able to research and quickly learn solutions to the problem. Most of my working career consists of on the job and/or self training.
My hobbies include working on cars, electronics, and home improvement projects.
