I manage a small electrical engineering group at a medical device development organization. I've worked there about 15 years. Before that I worked in industrial instrumentation in various positions for over 20 years.

I'm an electrical engineer. I work as a product designer for a sensor group of Nidec motor company in Ohio. I work from my home office/lab in California.

One of my first jobs was with the Delco Electronics division of General Motors. I was tasked with doing a full reverse engineering of the noise reduction board in a Carver TX-11.

I enjoy doing electronic repairs and troubleshooting as a hobby. I like solving puzzles, and electronic repairs are pretty good puzzles.

Some of the notable systems I've repaired include a sensor problem under a Titan III missile at Vandenberg AFB, and fixing an intermittent runaway motion problem on the Carousel at the Cirque du Soleil Show O at Bellagio in Las Vegas.

  Now, if I were to work on a runaway problem at the local carousel, things might turn out to be more amusing...
 
  I also like to solve problems, at least within my limitations. As it is, I have been more of a parts changer for awhile with electronic projects. It so happens that when we step out of the circle, that is where we can discover something new that shouldn't have worked according to the norm. I drove my first boss a little more crazy by inventing new solutions not covered in the Bell manual.

Boring-Boring

 
Understudy for Garde Manger-Saucier-Baker-Sous Chef for 15 years (old School) have my paper's in all disciplines and have been an Executive Chef and restaurant owner. Two best days of my life was when I opened and when I sold. Started at the age of 15. Was the first non European Chef invited to perform and cook for the Dallas performing Arts Gala 1982 (TACA Dinner) to benefit the performing arts . Along the way set up UFOC (Uniform Franchise Operating Codes) for many restaurants such as Pizza Hut-Joes Seafood-and others. Trained all the broiler (steak) cooks and franchise owners in kitchen operations for Steak Ale back in the 60’s.
Now I am the purchasing agent for Marriott Hotel. Everything from toilet paper to steaks, kitchen equipment to beds. I do get to work closely with the culinary staff and Chef’s on new recipes and ingredients which is fun but the pay sucks and the hours long but I do get benefits such as Insurance for myself and Susan and substantial room discounts at all our brands.

I've been a mechanic all of my life... Started out as a helicopter mechanic in the Army and found a job working on Baltimore City Police helicopter for a shot while. Got fired! I was dragging my azz getting my A&P licence and me and the boss didn't really hit it off.

It's just me and her, we've had the shop for 19 years now....and at the shop we get to jam out most every day... Got my Klipsch KP-362's being powered by a Carver TFM-42Party!Oh yea we rock out at the shop
