Work and training in several fields has given Bruce a broad range of skills. Most of his career has been spent repairing vehicles, concentrating on medium/heavy truck repair. Workload of late has been mostly diesel engine repair and electrical/electronics diagnosis.

Factory work building turf equipment, running a diecast machine, and as a quality control inspector led him to the conclusion that he needed a less repetetive and regimented vocation.

He bought a fixer-upper house, rehabbed it and now uses it as a rental property.

Bruce also has scientific training in Nanoscience. Much of that training involved cleanroom work. In addition to credit work he did workstudy repairing cleanroom equipment and prototyped deposition recipes for bringing a new vacuum chamber online.

He started and posts to his blogsite on truck repair and news. On the site's forum he answers repair and diagnostic information. The site recieves 5,000 to 6,000 page views per month, in a narrow niche subject.

To further develop his writing skills Bruce has written two books on repair of the International/Navistar DT466E diesel engine. The books are in pdf form on CD, and have sold over sixty copies on Ebay and Amazon in less than a year.
Two more books are in the works along with another on a more general subject.
