After high school, I joined the US Navy in February of 1983 and served 4 years as an aircraft mechanic. After being honorably discharged from the Navy I attended John A. Logan College in the spring of 1987 and received my Applied Science degree in Computer Aided Design and Drafting.
I was hired at Boeing Aerospace Co. after graduation in May of 1989 and moved to the St.Louis area were I worked as a technical illustrator. While in St.Louis I met the love of my life and got married and had 2 boys. I moved to Davenport IA in December 2008 and worked at an engineering company as a mechanical designer and later move to the technical publication department creating technical illustrations for service manuals.
I attended Scott community college in 2015 and studied Web Application Development through an online certificate program. I decided that I need to advance my career so now I’m working on my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Graphic Design at Upper Iowa University and expecting to graduate in May of 2020.
