Tell us a little about yourself:
After the Army (Nov 1994) I went to work in the civilian sector making good use of my zero defect Blackhorse work ethic.
Jobs in production management , QA/QC and then project management were a good fit for me.
I managed to get back into the Tank business (1999) with GDLS for a short while before transitioning to the Stryker program (2002). I had my sights on the Mobile Gun System (Stryker with 105mm cannon). In 2005 I was selected over my instructor peers at GD to lead the new team being set up to teach the new variant.
It was a long uphill battle with many opponents (Armor school) lurking to defeat us.
In 2007 we got the full rate production go ahead.
GD terminated me for being too disabled to deploy in 2009 .
I am currently in my third year of college pursuing a degree in Graphic Design (getting good grades) with the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.
I have been selling my artwork for many years now. I founded my studio in 2009 and have not looked back.
I identify yourself as a Blackhorse Trooper and I will give you a discount and free shipping.
