An Engineer's Life
"At 7-12 years old, I was fixing bicycles, appliances, and experimenting with chemistry and electricity. In 8th grade basic electricity class, I taught the instructor and classmates military-spec soldering, and was already building amplifiers and power supplies. By age 16 was Ham radio licensed, and fixing motorcycles and ATVs.
Until the age of 30 I was intermittently involved with off-road racing and with servicing and upgrading Hot Rods and ATVs. During this time I established my reputation as an expert troubleshooter.
The experience in electrical and mechanical abuseability was a HUGE start in my ability to retrofit and upgrade custom and pre-manufactured power equipment. I've spent 45 years making power equipment of all types run better than before, be more serviceable, more reliable, and longer-term, lower-cost. I've drawn on all of my combined experience to provide my customers with the absolute best quality in commercial cleaning equipment the dollar can buy."
