Passionate welder with varying experience in MIG, TIG, SMAW, and other fabrication techniques. I am extensively trained to work with anything, from thin gauge steel to half inch or thicker plate steel and numerous other metals. I am able to quickly go from welding to drilling then to the saw all the while maintaining quality work and precise measurements. An asset to any shop, I communicate and work well with others and adapt quickly to new situations and environments. I'm always looking to help out wherever I can and constantly working to improve in my abilities.
