I got into welding quite honestly because of the money. My sister married a pipe welder and I saw the size of his paycheck. I became his helper and he worked with me welding and pulling measurements. I immediately fell in love with the trade. I have 16 years experience welding in the field. What I like most about being an instructor is giving back, teaching our students what old timers have taught me over the years.My hobbies include going to the gym, hunting, fishing, shooting guns, and really anything manly.
