Blogging is one of Bruce's favorite writing activities.
He is also a good researcher and likes to tackle longer articles of a more indepth nature.
Bruce is an avid golfer, fisherman and all around outdoorsman.
Bruce attended UWRF full time for his freshman year, then took a full time job to avoid starving to death. During subsequent part time study he specialized in sculpture.
He installed a free standing metal sculpture in the yard of the Fine Arts building, then won a $500 comission for a large wall piece installed in the Student Center.
Although he earned a 3.70 cumulative GPA he discovered the field was not a good fit for his personality.
A layoff from a repair shop management position during the 2009 economic downturn prompted Bruce to try his hand at a new vocation.

It has applications in the fields of Medicine, Electronic devices, Coatings and Thin Film, Food products, and Materials Science and Egineering.
He earned a comulative GPA of 3.51.
Upon graduation Bruce discovered the economy hadn't recovered to the point where a suitible job was available.
Bruce wrote experiment and project results while studying Nanoscience. The reports often included charts or graphs, and usually required at least some research.
The reports were required to be accurate, factual, and complete.

Diagnostic stories from his career as a truck technician.
Posts detailing a spectific diagnostic task.
