I used to be a State of Florida Probation & Parole Officer. Now I teach high school deep in the inner city. It's almost like I never left the department. Great preparation it was! My best students are those on probation. It really helps to motivate them when they realize that I KNOW what to do if they cut up or don't perform. Nothing like a weekend in JAIL to straighten out a kid's attitude!

This is of course with a broken leg.
In Cali, I worked as a sales representative in the automotive industry for 13 years. Prior to that I was U.S. Navy.
Since back in Georgia, when I'm well enough, I want to due something more meaningful for folks and beneficial to my personal heath.
I made good money in the automotive business but when the stress is great enough for you to have a heart attack "widow maker", at 39 years of age. You kinda want to change priorities to live.

Roadway & Bridge inspector for a medium sized consulting/engineering firm.
To sum it up---I'm the guy the contractor HATES, and the public loves. I'm the guy behind the scene that makes sure bridges don't fall and roadways dont sink.
