Graduated 1984 with an Associate Degree in Machine Tool from Ivy Tech. Received my Journeyman’s in Pattern Making in July 1988 where I acquired this working for Ward Pattern & Engineering from 1984 thru 1997. There I not only gained experience in pattern making but also knowledge of foundry operations. This exposure gave me a better understanding of the foundries needs.
