I spent 8 years in the US Army as a medic. I did 3 tours in Bosnia & a UN mission to Macedonia which led to the Kosovo war. Also, I was an active section sergeant when 9/11 happened. When I got out of the service, I went to go work with my dad at his machine shop. My father had a 3 Axis machine that we used for mainly doing cabinet work. During this time, we had purchased V23 and were able to get BobART to work on and create different logos/images people wanted to be Milled out. Our niche was being able to Mill out one-off parts and other parts that the other guys either couldn’t do or wouldn’t do. Luckily, we made it through the recession when it hit and we were a subcontractor for a couple of AV companies making custom workstations for the switchover from analog to digital in TV & radio stations. And also done work for the movie industry that have come through Florida.
 
Working here at BobCAD-CAM has afforded the opportunity to learn a lot from both my coworkers and the customers we serve. Every day I learn more and more, which allows me to pass on that knowledge to others. Oh, and everyone here is great to work with! I love our team.
