Tell us about yourself:
Retired a couple years now. Found an interesting part time job, transporting an occasional vehicle to/from car dealerships, either as a swap or delivery. Used to do a lot of driving all my life, as a truck driver for a short time and a field service engineer more recently.
Area of knowledge and what I know well:
Was a field service engineer, installing and servicing Medical Diagnostic Equipment such as CT Scanners and MRI Systems. I can tell you how they work and a little bit about how they are used on patients, but I can't or won't diagnose any results, so don't ask.
Bio
Retired service engineer for medical diagnostic equipment. I’m a safe driver – I also used to drive trucks and now I transport cars to dealerships part-time.
