I am a Boilermaker! There are welders and there are boilermakers. Welders are typically proficient at what they do –welding. Boilermakers on the other hand, possess a wide variety of skills, knowledge and pride of ownership in their trade.

Over the past 24 years as an avid boilermaker, my toolbox contains the acumen of sought-after skills such as safety conscientiousness, layout, fit-up, burning, fabrication, and accurate interpretation of blueprints. I am furthermore highly proficient in designing and drafting jigs for various purposes, prepping welds and welding. Welding in and on itself is not the be-all and end-all of boilermakers. All boilermakers are welders at some point in their careers, however very few welders are boilermakers. .Hence, when asked what it is I do, I can reply with absolute conviction:

"I am a boilermaker. An exceptional one!"

Being a positive and optimistic person who enjoys challenges, I have excellent communication skills and approach matters maturely and sincerely. I am a smoker with sober habits, am presentable, possess a good sense of humour, and embrace life with enthusiasm and energy. I am a good listener and ardent team player. My great deal of common sense, bolstered by practical life experience, enables me to grow, lead, influence and inspire.
