PERSONAL HISTORY


Rodr potrait-1
















•  I am originally from California. My father, a mechanical engineer in the Navy and later for Union Carbide was a lifetime member of MENSA. My mother was a self employed business woman. Both contributed insight and knowledge to my first love, totally my choice, which is the industrial arts.

•  After High School, I studied tool and die making on the College level. While attending college I was employed at Xerox Corporation for practical work experience. 

•  For the last 30 years I have been working in the moldmaking industry. I have literally worked in every department in a machine shop  from running a bandsaw to inspector of medical devices.  

•  Before retirement, recently I was also an ISO internal auditor in a major medical device manufacturing company.





WATCH AND CLOCK REPAIR

Another passion of mine is Watch and Clock repair. I make custom parts for the watch and clockmakers in my area. This led to a chance meeting with a fellow   mold maker, who was also a watch and indicator repairman. He was my tutor and taught me the intricacies of indicator repair and I’ve been repairing them ever since.

ORGANIZATIONS PAST AND PRESENT
•  Tooling & Manufacturing Association.  
•  National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors.
