Well, originally from Detroit. Then we moved across the River to Windsor when I was a child.
When I was a teenager I was sent to Northern Ontario - Thunder Bay to live with my father.
Fast forward till now, I’m 36, father of 3, and married.
I have a pretty damn cool job. I fly and build drones designed for specific tasks.
I work for a mine site full time flying and 3d modelling. As well as other engineering work.
I contract my skills out to other drone companies- most notably this year Switzerland, Ukraine and Africa. They pay me to fly, crash, design prototype
parts that meet their initial intent specs.
Outside of work, I try to be the best person I can be, everyday.
I am a brother mason.
Christmas time is very special to a few of us.
We usually get together at the Walmart (this coming Thursday)
And we will be helping people pay for their gifts.
The weather up here is insanely unseasonable. It’s usually-20 to -30 everyday at this time of the year, but it’s been plus 3 and 4 for the past
As a Christmas gift to myself I bought a new Jeep last week. That makes 3 vehicles in the drive way now.
I don’t drink or anything anymore but I do play video games.- thankfully my wife doesn’t mind. She got me the newest Xbox one the other day - Xbox
I’m playing it right now actually. A space exploration game called Elite Dangerous.
I’ve worked a lot this year so we decided it’s time for some vacation.
I get to spend the next month at home with the family. Ive been off for a week already and don’t go back until January 22!
Being on salary is great. Having a great employer is amazing. Been there for going on 9 years now.
For a few years I was a volunteer firefighter in our community.
Seeing some of the horrible accidents I have, takes effect on you after awhile.
I no longer am part of the firefighters here, but I do keep up to date on my first responder training.
The mine sees to it that I am kept up to date with everything.
I most recently took a Briefing Officer course.
This is for people to organize and take control of the safety efforts of Mine Rescue in the event of an underground emergency.
That’s my life in a nutshell.
