Just your average gear-head. One of the good guys. Certified nuke fitter/welder, plumber, electrician, machinist, metal fabricator, carpenter and union piledriver (Local 56, Boston). I can fix anything but a broken heart!
Right after high school I joined the Coast Guard, went to AMS and AMH school in Millington, TN, and from there to working on and flying HU-16Es and HH-52As out of Opa-Locka at CGAS Miami. Made E5 in three years. Twice!
From there I had a bazillion jobs, from asbestos remover to xylophone repairman. I get bored easily.
As far as the transportation world goes I've been a mechanic, a restorer, a painter, built boats and airplanes, built dragsters and funny cars for a while for a well-known shop in New Hampshire, and built custom Harleys for another well-known but universally disliked shop in the Brockton area.
Grew up in NH, but I'm a Masshole at heart!!
