Work experience

Oct 2009Apr 2009


High Plains Machine Works

Don't really want to work in oil field to much anymore.  The oil field is to much of an unstable industry and you never know when you are going to get laid off, such as in my case.

Crane Operator
Can operate any crane and in most situations.  Was trained in the Army and ran overseas in Iraq.  I was on a recovery team that recovered blown up vehicles off of the roads.
Mig and Stick welding are what I like the most.  Can do some TIG welding but would like to learn more.

I am an extremely motivated 24 year old ready to get into the pipeline.  I have plenty of experience with heavy equipement such as track hoes and all sizes of cranes.  I am also a good welder.
