Get ready for a bumpy ride through my short life story :P
I'm 22 years old and engaged to a my beautiful redhead girlfriend, whom I have been with for about 3.5 years. I grew up in Central Illinois in a tiny little town about half an hour from Peoria where my dad worked as a Master Toolmaker for that big yellow off-road vehicle company.
My first "job" was fixing the computers at my High School when I was 15, followed by a real, paying job at a local computer repair shop when I was 16
Then I worked at the big yellow off-road vehicle company setting up the computers for the division of big yellow off-road vehicles with tank treads on them until I was 18
Then I went across the street to install servers for the division of big yellow off-road vehicles for computer stuff until they laid me off
Then I was a Customer Service Help Desk Representative (Team Lead, actually, I just didn't get the title or the pay) for a spin-off company of the BYORV company that supports a lot of their shop equipment
Then I moved to one of the IT Help Desks for that company
Then I got a job on an IT Help Desk out here in AZ and picked up all my stuff and moved out of my parents house at the age of 19 to live 1600 miles away with my girlfriend. And that, my friends, leads me to now.
After moving out here I went and learned a little bit about bladesmithing from Tai Goo down in Tucson (Google him if you don't know who he is--he does amazing work) and then I needed a sheath for the knife he helped me make. Now I'm still fixing broken computers in AZ, but I also make leather stuff
