Skills

Race Car Driver
I began racing Super Trucks as a hobby at Altamont Raceway Park in Tracey, California.  After several years, I began to fabricate and compete with cars of my own design.  In 2000 and 2001, I won the Pro 4 Truck Series championship.  In 2002 - 2004, I  worked in management and promotion at Stockton 99 Speedway in Stockton, California.  I am currently consulting for a start-up team which will compete in the Rolling Thunder Modified Tour in North and South Carolina.  
Welding / Computer-Assisted Design
I have been consistently using the skill of welding in motorsports applications, including chassis development and fabrication.  I have experience in stick welding, MIG, and TIG.    Most recently, I have applied this skill while fabricating a robot chassis for Team Spork 3196 in both the 2010 and 2011 competition season (FIRST Robotics).  In addition to simply welding, the process of development includes CAD design and water-jetting aluminum and steel to fabricate a working chassis and/or related parts.
