Skills

Skills

Jack of All Trades

I have several years of experience in various construction fields. I have worked for plumbing companies where I have acquired knowledge enough to run plumbing in from the street, and the waste lines back out of the house to the street. I have worked for 2 different general contracting companies that taught me different things. From one, I learned how to operate and maneuver a backhoe, as well as a bobcat. I also learned some carpentry basics. At the second g.c. job, I learned how to frame, install and mud sheet rock, I learned how to paint  efficiently, and cut in as well. I was involved in the construction of a 1,000 square foot addition onto the house I live in where I learned about siding, roofing, and electrical. I have property maintenance skills: I can change/re-key locks, and perform the necessary repairs to the domicile, getting it ready for the next tenant to move in as soon as possible. I have been a masonry tender, where I worked on military installations, and other Government run facilities where I learned how to cut brick and block with various saws, cut angle iron and re-bar, I also know how to use the mixer and make the mud. 

Sound Manager

I currently run, and set up the sound board as well as the rest of the sound system for my church. I oversee a crew that assists in set up of the equipment. We have 9 microphones, a band consisting of 2 guitars, 1 bass, acoustic drums that are mic-ed, as well as a pair on conga's. What I do is mix, and adjust volumes so that no one sound output is overpowering another. There are times when I have to go through and troubleshoot problems, and they are resolved shortly after the start of setting out to fix them.
