Bio
I grew up in a welding shop and that's pretty much where I spent most of my time. My dad done more than just fabrication so there were plenty of things to get into around the shop. I was always messing with some engine or even an electric motor. I learned how to wire an electric motor when I was about 7 and also learned how to strike an arc and make a weld bead when I was about 6. Funny thing, I never really done much welding until I was about 14 or 15. My dad also installed septic systems so there were many hot summer days spent on new home construction sites. That kind of stuck with me, only I now drill water wells with my own rig during the summer months aside from the other things. I've also worked as a network admin at a local internet provider, worked at a few local radio stations, and in a machine shop.
