Professional Summary

In my teens, I worked for a steel fabricator where I operated welders, cutting torches, drills, grinders, and forklifts both large and small. I also worked for a machinist shop where I operated various machines such as lathes, drills, punches, and presses.

I started in the retail grocery business in 1983 when I was 20 years old. I was consistently praised and promoted and worked in retail grocery for about 10 years. I have a good understanding of the grocery business.

In 1993 I left the grocery business to enter college where I earned an A.A.S. degree in drafting and design.

After graduating college in 1995 I worked for a group of Architects for 3 years producing drawing packages and details both manually and on computer.

In 1998 I started working with Sturdisteel as a draftsman. I quickly moved from just draftsman to also checking the work of other draftsmen. For several years I was the primary checker of construction and shop manufacturing drawings.

In 2005 I was promoted to Detailing Coordinator/Drafting Room Manager of the engineering department for Sturdisteel. I remained there until February of 2017.

I've had a fairly diverse working career with a proven record of optimum performance, diligence, and achievement.

I have extensive experience in managing people in a way that promotes success for the company as well as the employee.

I am confident in my abilities, knowledge, professionalism, and determination.

I will be a very efficient, reliable, and productive asset to your company.
