Summary of Industry Experience


Don has written many automotive technical articles as well as articles related to flight both informative and instructional. He has an extensive background in these subjects. His experience began at a young age while still in high school. He exhibited a propensity for repairing automobiles which ultimately led to his proprietorship of several auto service related businesses for over 28 years.

His flight experience was first acquired while in high school where he where much of his spare time was spent at Carbon County airport. He joined the Army and attended flight school after becoming an officer. Two tours in Viet-Nam flying helicopters and 7 years later he was discharged. The next 8 years were spent flying commercially in fixed wing aircraft as well as helicopters. Some spare time was dedicated to commercial pilot instruction.


Don's written instructional text for construction projects. He's familiar with most aspects of construction due in most part to the fact that he was brought up in this environment. He is, you might say, the black sheep in the family. All his relatives are in construction and was involved in every aspect at one time or another. He built his own home, garage, patios, decks, concrete work and my favorite, finishing work. He enjoys building custom china cabinets and kitchen cabinets.

Home Living

Just hands-on experience - no writing experience. Don has built sheds and small barns for himself and neighbors. He also does home repairs and builds cabinetry. He has limited experience with appliance repair -- usually small things such as dryer belts, air conditioning condenser clogs and fixing switches on vacuums and other small appliances.


Don has the experience and profile for this topic, although have only written a few articles. Having been raised in the armed forces, he had the opportunity to travel extensively. His father was very active in hunting, fishing and skiing, and explored every possibility throughout Europe and the Orient with Don accompanying him whenever practical. This is not to mention the years spent in the Army as a pilot which offered an abundance of such opportunities. An example is enclosed.


Don has examples on this site related to marketing. This ties in with his Bachelor of Science degree in Business, not to mention all the years of experience advertising and marketing his products such as tires, service and parts related to his stores.
