I'm a native of the Midwest, an adopted son of the South, and California is now my home. I graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in Political Science after several years of working in a variety of fields including the construction business, offshore petroleum, agricultural and real estate. I started out as a construction pipe welder, and soon found that I enjoyed teaching this skill to others. After a few years as a welding teacher I turned my deeper interests in the welding arts into a career in underwater welding. I worked on the research and development of underwater welding processes and procedures, and I trained deep-sea divers the art of electric arc welding underwater. After the research, the training, and the testing, I would then become team leader on the various deep-sea welding projects worldwide. Come join me in the Chabot Welding Department, and I promise we’ll have some fun as we learn together how to sew metals together with FIRE!
