I am an ex-corporate executive that enjoys good-spirited conversation and writing. Besides executive management, I have worked as a computer programmer, systems analyst, licensed septic system installer, web designer, backhoe operator, b2b salesman, truck driver, printing press operator, industrial camera operator, industrial machine operator (several different machines), equipment mechanic, newsletter author, newsletter editor, volunteer fireman, and public speaker. My hobbies include woodworking, carpentry, gardening, photography, grandkids, my dog, and motocycling. I had to give up boating, fishing, and golf, as I didn't have the time. I am skilled in drywall installation, electrical work, plumbing, appliance repair, electronic circuit design (a little rusty here), and automotive rebuilding and repair. I'm still not sure what I want to do when I grow older.
