    I am the Precision Machining instructor at the A.K. Smith Career Center in Michigan City. I was born and raised in La Porte, Indiana. I attended the Ivy Tech campus in South Bend to study Industrial Technology with a concentration on precision machining. I have 20 years experience in the precision machining and manufacturing industry. As a machinist, my machining experience came from being employed by machine shops involved with the aerospace & manufacturing industry. My interests are spending quality time with my family, fishing, traveling, bicycle riding, and watching sports. I also enjoy learning about history and new technologies in manufacturing!
