My history of working in the metal machining trade dates back to 1969. During my career I have worked as a Journeyman Machinist, Contract CNC Machinist, Shop Foreman, CNC Shop Supervisor and finally the owner/manager of my own CNC Machine Shop. After the sale of my business in 2000 my wife & I relocated to Florida with the intentions of retiring. Unfortunately after 12 years, escalating living and medical expenses are driving me to re-enter the workplace again.
I consider myself a diligent, demanding and hard working individual always striving to improve current conditions. I work well with people and would like to find a company that could benefit from my machine shop skills and business knowledge.
