It has taken a lifetime to overcome being told to keep your mouth shut or you will not live a full life. Starting at a young age my life time struggle became staying alive, having a means to survive, and to have a loving family.
My formal education is two years of technical school, computer programming, American management association courses, and home study. On the job & home study training in NASA mathematical analysis in the early 70's is my top shelf. My total experience is fifty five years of mechanical engineering, manufacturing, research and development, and field failure analysis.
I worked on fifteen to twenty patents, have five to ten of my own and extensive analysis with NASA mathematics that came out of the space R&D.
I refused a job with the skunks five years before their name became public domain. My work history included DROTT and J.I.CASE Manufacturing. I was in my own business for twenty- five years and then lost everything. My entire work life was devoted to engineering and family investigations starting at a young age.
My biggest changing lessons in life became, be careful who you trust, and the major influencing factor is "GREED".
