In a previous life . . .
☞ I served 10 years in the Royal Air Force specializing in Aeronautical Engineering. I was deployed to Hong Kong, the Falkland Islands and Belize where I worked on mainly fast jets and choppers, with the occasional C130 thrown in for good measure.
☞ Next stop was a three-year civilian engineer gig for British Aerospace in Saudi Arabia where I was attached to the Royal Saudi Air Force in Dhahran. My timing was impeccable: I lived and worked through Desert Shield and Desert Storm, and if we ever get a chance to meet, I’ll show you the remains of a Scud missile that I keep on my keychain.
☞ Moved to Orlando to marry a Gator grad who blessed me with 2 great kids and 28 amazing years (and counting).
☞ Parlayed my engineering training into jobs in the architecture and engineering industries. RIS is the third small business I’ve owned and operated, and the only thing I can equate small business ownership to is drinking water through a firehose.
