I live and work in Ogden, Utah as a project manager for a steel manufacturing company, supporting aerospace, nuclear, petrochemical, and other industries. Prior to this job, I had the privilege of serving a career in the US Air Force with several assignments throughout Europe and one in California. I held various positions in aviation maintenance, including production superintendent and aviation safety program manager. I also have three years of commercial experience as a line mechanic for DHL Air Freight in Sacramento, performing scheduled maintenance on 727 aircraft.
