Certified Nurse Assistant/file clerk at a jail

Started out as a caregiver (noncertified work) at a memory care facility for a year and a half, then I went to school for a month while working to get certified and then moved up to CNA at a skilled facility working graves for 2 years and now moved on up to the jail for almost 3 years now. I have topped out and am contemplating my next move. *to be continued*

I have held the titles of
PFC
Bread Delivery Driver
Gas Station Attendant
Line Cook
Environmental Ground Water Tech
Mounted Patrol Guard (unarmed)
Caregiver
CNA
Clerk
Step Dad
Husband


It's been a wild ride

Items needed:
4mm wetsuit 2xl?           
vhf                                  new paddle (using my paddles from 1996)
lip gripper                       crab pot
new yak...(in my dreams)

Man this networking thread was hard to find! Why in the " for sale" section? Seems like a funkdified place for it. Anywho im Travis and lovin ncka so reckon il fill u in on my life in a nutshell. Im a welder/ironworker & certified associate welding inspector soon to be full inspector, maybe. Over ten welding certs too. Im the fab guy. Im 28 and started welding freshman year in beginners welding.then advanced welding sophomore year. Then advanced teachers aid junior n senior year.shop rat since 14! Momma said here, go to college il pay for it. I said no thanks mom, I wanna build shit, put it towards your retirement. And here I am, 28 and never been unemployed. Started building railings n spiral staircases n such at 17 at a shop here in loomis. Briefly after graduated to structural steel. I-beams, columns, stairs, hand rail, guard rail, canopies, stainless and aluminum,  if it can possibly be built, I can build it. If it makes a molten pool, I can weld it. Tig, mig, dual shield,  fcaw, spool gun or anytting u neeed! Im one of 3 shop leads and additionally ( as of 4 days ago ) got a massive promotion. My work recently ordered a CNC ( computer numerically controlled ) beamline and also a CNC laser. Which the bosses decided I would be the best candidate to run and maintain. No pressure right? Lol. Our first cnc beamline just arrived and is pending install starting tomorrow 9/15/15. Followed by the laser which is in route. When not working im hunting or fishing usually. Im a bit rough around the edges. Im usually dirty as hell. I dont have much of a filter and usually say what needs to be said so sorry if I seem lippy sometimes,  its nothing personal!!! I blame it on working in a shop with a bunch of tattoo face felons lol  :smt002. Bring over a 30 pack if you need to fab some shit up!

Hello all,
New to ncka and thought I'd share a little about myself. I've worked at many different places from subway for 5.15 hr in Arizona (first job and it sucked) to working in a lab with chemists packaging and quality control. I have always worked on cars and have always been a part time mechanic but now that is my full time job. I am self employed and do fairly well for myself and I am trying to save up enough to own my own shop. I work on all cars but love the old schools. I own a 74 nova 4door sleeper that is almost done and about to get started on my 68 firebird coup 400. A lot of hobbies but it seems that cars and now this kayak fishing are the most expensive. Me get as well live life and enjoy it.

That is some sweet welding right there!!!
Do it until you scream, then a short pause is acceptable.
Mental?  perhaps

I seen that thrust block for the tunnel in SF. I thought I may have a picture of it, but I don't. Nice skills there bro. Looks like you could weld ice cream! :smt006
