My parents didn't encourage my short-lived desire to be a mechanic, so I kind of did the reverse. I ended up with a degree in Communications (Film) from Emerson College in Boston, and couldn't find a job to save my life either in 1991 when I graduated thanks to the economy and the Reagan deficits. So I went to truck driving school, got my CDL... Was going to drive a truck but ended up moving to Long Island to be in a band... :) Worked at a music magazine for ten years, learned computers during that time & that's what I'm doing now.Its funny ytou should mention this. When I was in high school (circa 1988) all I wanted to be was a mechanic. I took all the shop classes, and did the minimum of other academic work. I even went to a technical school to learn more about mechanics. By 1989 I had a job as a line mechanic at a Ford dealership, and by 1990 I was laid off.
With the economy the way it was then, I couldn't find
another basically entry-level mechanic job, so I
decided to go back to school. Part time at first, but
eventually I ended up attending university full-time,
and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in 1997. Now I
have a good paying job that allows me to do things
like tinker with Type 3s.
I'm very grateful for that...
