Normal guy that's fairly new to the area... I grew up on the Texas gulf coast, but I cant see myself ever going back to the mosquitoes and humidity.
I work in the Oil&Gas industry, have for the past 4 years and really enjoy it. I'm an electrician on an offshore drilling rig. I work a 28/28 day rotation. So I am gone a lot, but when I'm home i'm off. This can be a problem for some, I realize this. So I figure it's best to get that part out there from the beginning.
I can be a little quiet in the beginning but it doesn't generally last too long. Once that's out of the way I'd say most people think I'm funny. Well if you can deal with smartass I'm funny ha.
I did a 5 year stint in the Navy as an aviation electrician from 02-07. It was a good experience that definitely helped open some doors career wise for me.
I've done some traveling, but most of it has been for my job or during my time in the Navy. So far the list goes like this: Dubai, Bahrain, Qatar, Iraq, Greece, Spain, Turkey, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. I'd have to say Vietnam has been my favorite to date. Looking forward to hopefully taking a couple weeks there this next spring.
Well I guess I am going to leave it at that for now. Hopefully it's enough to either peak your interest or let you know I'd be a waste of your time lol. Either way good luck!
