Advanced Electronics Technician


I am a tenacious highly talented worker.  I have many skills and do share my skills with others.  I take on the toughest of assignments and accomplish them to the best of my ability as long as I am given the tools and know the scope of the task. I like to think I pay for myself  and then some in the development of doing what is right instead of doing something the easy way.
