Homeless at 17, welder and diesel mechanic for 6 years. Managed a Caterpillar dealership (Engine division) 12 years. Independent rotating equipment consultant, self employed, 16 years with a specialty of large crude oil fueled engine driven pipeline pump packages (3-10 MW, 30-250 tons); very heavily traveled worldwide. Currently a senior rotating equipment engineer in the central engineering group at a super-major oil company. No formal education so don't lay into me due to an academic boo boo on a post, please. Keep it professional. 35 years of failing under my belt in 80 countries. I don't know how to build it, but I sure know how NOT to build it!
