I graduated with an Associate Degree in Drafting Technology in 1994.

I then went to work for a Civil Engineering Firm that specialized in site development and utility design. I implemented the use of AutoCad based Civil Design Software to generate plans that were issued for bidding purposes for private as well as municipal projects.
