Profile Information

Surveyor Bio:
I've been surveying for 18 years in the central Florida area and 1 year in Texas. The first years of my career were defined in the swamps of the Green Swamp area with a T-1 and chain breaking down sections the old fashioned way before finally getting a "piggy-back" EDM in '95. My first calculator was an HP-11c, then to the 48GX in 95. Since then I have grown into more advanced instruments and GPS of all kinds and have grown into an unlicensed office position doing everything a licensed surveyor does except sign the surveys. The past 6 years have been mainly construction of roads, bridges, and working for Universal Studios or Disney building roller coasters and working on Sets for Universal. The last roller coaster I was a part of was Expedition Everest in Disney's Animal Kingdom.

I've been unemployed for 6 months when an old employer called me up and offered me a field position again ... I've been getting soft in the office as a manager for about 5-6 years and he wanted me to head a crew up and go line-cutting. I needed the money badly and jumped on the chance to get back out into the field with gusto. Man how 5 years of sitting on your butt… Read more →
