I am an accomplished Mechanical Engineering Technician of over 9 years. Through out my professional career I have worked on a wide variety of things from steel trim for a electrical disconnect box to a distribution trough for an automated casting machine. Having fabrication and machining as a hobby has given me a realistic outlook that I have found to be extremely valuable.
