I have experience with, and am skilled at installing, troubleshooting, testing, and repairing a variety of electrical equipment to include transformers, circuit breakers, and switchyard busses. I have a good level of electrical knowledge with an Associates Degree in Electrical Construction and Maintenance from Mitchell Technical Institute, as well as two military MOS' dealing with both electronics and generators. I also have experience in mechanics and welding.
As a member of the South Dakota Army National Guard, I have achieved 3 Military Occupational Specialties (MOS). My first was as a Welder and Metalworker, where I graduated Distinguished Honor Graduate. Second I received my Generator Mechanic MOS, and third was for a Computer and Detection Systems repairer. I served as the Squad Leader for the Electronics Platoon while maintaining this MOS, giving me some leadership experience that has helped me to advance in my military career.
I graduated from Mitchell Technical Institute in 2006 with a degree in Electrical Construction and Maintenance. That same year, I married my wife Sarah, and we now have 2 children, Elizabeth and Benjamin.
I handle the calibration, maintenance, repair, and accountability of all of the Test Measurement Devices and Equipment (TMDE) in the state. I work on a wide variety of equipment to include multimeters, torque wrenches, pressure gages, calipers, micrometers, chemical detection devices, radiation detection devices, alarms, dial indicators, and many others. Another responsibility is the accountability of these items and their readiness. I work on a computer program called TIMMS. This program allows me to check which items are delinquent on their calibration, project what items will be due calibration soon, and produce Master Lists of what items belong to what units or shops. I can also generate reports detailing completed work, the status of the items on job order, my state delinquency rate, and my availability rate.
This position has allowed me to expand my knowledge in troubleshooting, and the use and repair of the tools for that task.
Working as a mechanic, I repaired diesel and gas engine operated vehicles and generators. I handled the diagnostics, repair and testing of the equipment I was working on, and insured the proper paperwork was completed. This position had a wide scope of responsibilities from packing wheel bearings, to changing major engine components.
As an electrician, I installed multiple types of electrical equipment, circuits, conduit and fixtures. I also used testing equipment to perform troubleshooting procedures on faulty equipment and circuits. I gained a strong level of experience reading electrical drawings and blueprints.
