I'm a design engineer for Boeing, currently working on the US Air Force Refueling Tanker project. My "other" job is with the US Air Force as a C-17 Mechanic. I've been serving with the Reserves since 1995, and with the US Air Force since 1992.
I'm a father of 3 wonderful kids. Two boys who have now graduated high school and started the next chapter of their lives. My Daughter still lives at home with me in Lake Stevens, Washington.
I am a design engineer with Boeing and work once a month with the US Air Force Reserves on the mighty C-17 Globemaster III as a flightline mechanic.
On my free time, I love to work on my1985 Toyota MKII Supra. I've owned it since 2009, and have either rebuilt or replaced pretty much everything in it over the last couple years. A JDM 6MGE engine swap. Rebuilt transmission. Rebuilt rear differential. BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires. Whiteline sway bars. Drilled and Slotted rotors. OBX Headers. Full custom exhaust system. LED dash lights. HID headlights. 200 amp alternator with dual batteries and a battery isolator. And a stereo system that causes permanent hearing damage.
That's not the only project vehicle. I also built (from the ground up) a 1960 Chevy K10 Apache stepside 4x4. It sits on 35" tires, Mickey Thompson wheels, Rancho shocks. A 327 CID engine gives it power. Rockwell T221 transfer case puts that power to the wheels. Upgraded axles front and rear. Electric fans on the radiator. A 200 amp alternator powers the stereo, light bar, and winch. Nothing low key about this truck. It's an all American muscle flexing work of art!
The latest toy is the 1996 Jeep Cherokee Classic. Future plans will be a mild lift kit, wheels, tires, and a better stereo. This will eventually become my daughters daily driver.
On my "free time", I help one of my best friends build his house. It's a long, and difficult process and I try to get down there as often as I can to help as much as I can. He's always been there to help me with my stupid projects, so I try to be there for his ENORMOUS project. It's what friends do.
