Work Experience

My earliest work experience began with a career in law enforcement, where I spent a large amount of time working to establish and build positive relationships within the communities I worked. However, after nearly a decade, I chose to retire and focus my energies towards a new career working with industrial lasers. This I found rewarding and challenging at the same time in part due to it being in its infancy. I spent time in both operations and management before moving into a role as a laser applications specialist.

Unfortunately, after a severe car accident I was unable to continue in my profession. As a reader, I naturally had an inclination to write and found myself actively pursuing a career in content writing, and 10 years later, I still am proud to say I continuing in this field and plan to until such a time that I win the lottery and retire to my private island in the Caribbean where I hope to be waited on hand and foot, preferably by pretty girls in grass skirts while sipping fruity drinks with tiny umbrellas.

Why I Enjoying Working for Nostrabet

There are many reasons why I enjoy working as part of the team at Nostrabet. The main one for me is being part of a team of likeminded people who share in a common goal of being the best they can be. It is seldom you find the perfect blend of people, especially when dealing with such a broad range of nationalities and from different walks of life that work so well together. It is a continued pleasure and one even to this day that can surprise me, being that I am the “old guy”. Now, as for old part that is true, but let’s just say “older”, or “wiser”, YES!, we will go with that, even if it may elicit old man jokes from my man Ivan, so be it…:)

Another is the challenges faced as I carry out my responsibilities. While that is in itself not difficult, knowing my abilities and the quality of content I produce has a direct impact on the success of Nostrabet, and that keeps me grounded and focused.

What I like to do in my spare time

In the little spare time I have, I enjoy reading as it keeps my mind fresh, working and learning new things. While I would like to say I enjoy bird watching, unfortunately, due to a tragic experience while looking up while at the beach as a youngster that is simply not the case. I do, however, spend a great deal of time with my wife and children, both grown but still close. Beyond that, country drives, heading to Vegas with my best buddy and trips abroad with my wife fill in my list of things I love to do most, oh and playing with my cat Georgie (Named after George Constanza from Seinfeld).
