I own a river restoration design and build firm out of Bozeman, MT. A second career for me. Was in national accounts for a big paper company first. We also design and build ponds and wetlands.  We are now in NY. We work where the trout are mostly. I love my job.

Left a large HCM company after 15 years in November as senior leader there in their insurance space. Now a senior leader of government and individual programs at one of the big health insurance carriers here in NY. It pays the bills. I do sell hunting gear too as a passion pursuit. Another 10 years and I hope to wind down the professional career and do that full time.

Started out with a family business of appliance repairs and sales. We closed that, and went to work for a plumber. Stayed there for 13yrs. COVID hit and I went to the Stewart's Shops convenience store chain. I'm a district maintenance man there now. I like to think of myself as a MacGyver type of guy.

63 here and retired last year at 62. Made my Living with my Back in different  Warehouses for around 35 years and 7 years at wallyworld as the Shoe Dept Man and back in Receiving  unloading big containers. Only 1 Man unloads and turns are taken of course.

 My Father had me Pulling Skeet at age 11 to 16. So when 62 approached,I was happy to Retire.

  As some know,I also Taught Martial Arts for my own Sensei. I taught Friday Night combined Adult/Kids for years. Never made a Dime Teaching- then or now.

  5 days a week it was 8 hours in the warehouse and either straight to Heavy Lifting in the Gym or to the Dojo for 2 hours.

I’m a designer and project manager for a small architectural firm. Been in the profession since graduating college in 2004. After nearly 20 years I’m finally going for my professional license. To me it’s just a piece of paper and doesn’t mean you know any more or are any better of an architect because of it. 
 

I specialize in mixed use and multi-family buildings but also do the occasional commercial building or simple interior buildout. The firm I work for does everything though from residential additions to multi million dollar commercial buildings.

Worked in a local Dairy plant in my 20’s and worked my way up to Foreman . Left and decided to go to school and get my associates in automotive tech . Graduated with a 3.98 GPA . Worked in a few garages for several years then went to a school bus company for 7 years Before I left there I was lead tech running the garage for the last 5  . Now I’m a state motor vehicle mechanic  and run the garage now also 7 years last October  . I have 10 years till retirement, it’s still a dim light at the end of the tunnel but I can see it finally .
