My attitude and aptitudes
I have an aptitude for working with my hands and because of my photography career, I can visually find and pick out problems in the chaos of textures and lines in a home.
I have a gift for self-learning. I learn and absorb quickly. I am not satisfied with learning just enough to get me by. I desire consistent advancement and skill levels. I want responsibility.
I am self-motivated, responsible, dependable, and punctual. I am a family man with 30 successful years of marriage. I have a positive outlook on my life and work. I am organized and take on multiple concepts and jobs easily. I am open to learning from others. I have troubleshooting skills. I am proficient with computers, software and typing.
Life is Awesome!!!
