Electrical engineer (1976). Slide rules had just given way to hand held calculators. If you wanted your own PC, you had to buy individual components and build it yourself. State of the art word processing was an IBM Selectric typewriter that stored an entire sentence at one time! Man, times sure have changed.
Have worked on all types of building projects - university, health care, light industrial, public rec. facilities, schools, military, hotels, restaurants, high-rises, laboratories. Also built and renovated numerous houses over the years as a hobby/sideline. (More like an out of control hobby.) Even won an award once for restoration of an 1880s heritage house that I brought back from the grave.
Went back to Univ. in my 40s and earned an MBA on a part-time basis while still working full time. I was even building a house (mostly all myself) at the same time. Crazy, crazy period for me... Shortly after that, I was in a bad car accident and gave up working permanently.
