Default Wow, what a great group of people

I'm humbled to be a part of such a talented a diverse group of professionals.

Spent 22 years in the Navy. Smokey I hate to disagree with you about flying the "coolest airplane on the planet" I was blessed to fly this aircraft for a better part of my career.

Taught students for a while in this aircraft.

Now, I'm thankful to be flying for a very successful airline.

Default Software guy..

I make my living by writing software. Years ago, I wrote a plate tectonics simulator for a professor I was working for in college. One of my first jobs involved writing functions to assemble packets to command satellite transmitters and receivers. That was a challenging job because the manual was not up to date with hardware.

These days my job is pretty easy. I just write web sites for various types of clients. We show their customers statements in the form of a pdf for various things. Today we use c# and the latest version of .Net framework.

I'm lucky. I can work home or the cabin. I usually go into the office 2-3 times a week (or when the boss tells me to come in) to get out of the house. I live 5 miles from the airport, so I go there and do airplane stuff when I get the Boss's stuff done.

Well first I flew this for five years.... It didn't excite me enough.

Then I switched jobs. Now I fly these on a regular basis. Much more excitement!

At work.

A couple of my students working a sheet metal project. "Get your freakin safety glasses on!"

I have been an Aircraft Structural Technology instructor at Middle Georgia Technical College since 2004. We teach aircraft blueprints, sealants, composites, fabrication, tech data, corrosion, metallurgy, and aerodynamics. Our students work for Boeing, Lockheed, Gulfstream, and Robins Air Force Base. It is a great job for me because I can combine my masters in education with my A&P license. This is my niche in life - only took 38 years to find it!

I used to drive this with banners on the back.

Then I drove this with sight seeing pax in the front.

I also drove this with jumpers in the back.

Now I drive this with all kinds of different stuff in the back.
The money and schedule is better than the other jobs.
The work is easier and cleaner the boss treats me better (i.e. like a human being)
and the boxes in the back never complain.

Sorry, I can’t post pictures from my day job because I’m a photographer for

Just kidding…

I’m an independent business consultant that specializes in IT and Project Management process improvement. My current client is a large regional bank in the South East. The developers and software support group as well as the Project Management Office currently report to me.

This came about after I helped my client develop the PMO and reorganize the software development and support group.

Great group of people and I have really enjoyed this assignment. Unfortunately, this contract is about to come to an end so I’m currently looking for something else.
