My background started young in a farm setting. Working on our equipment and progressing into repairs for neighboring farms. I did some side jobs for a high performance engine machine shop for a bit. Over the years of farming, mechanicing, operating, ranching, and mining I have worked on many different types of equipment. With experience in gasoline and diesel engines, hydraulic systems, simple and complex electrical systems. I am also a very proficient welder and fabricator, making certifiable welds through unlimited thickness.
Those experiences have taught me to strive to be my best and be efficient, to be aware of my surroundings and always work to be safe in any situation. Also I enjoy learning and expanding my knowledge base. I am a steady individual, work hard, and don't give up on a challenge.
