Part Owner / Engineer

May 1995 - Nov 2001 (6 years)

Part owner and engineer of an engineering firm that designed and built machines for companies in the area. My partner and I started this firm when we left Michelin to direct our talents away from the corporate world into the private sector. We felt that our talents as mechanical engineers were being wasted in the corporate environment so we started our own engineering firm to put our talents to good use. The company thrived until 9-11-2001 when like many companies events through no fault of our own caused contracts to be canceled or put on hold indefinitely which caused us to close the company.
