Industrial Engineering - enjoy facility design via Autocad, determining what can work best for a facility. 250,000 to 500,000 sq. ft. projects for automotive Tier 1 and large food corporation.
Labor Standards knowledge - Technical writing about the implementation, usage, human factors, economics and analysis
Research - History of Baseball required several years to complete. Library, internet, mass media, journals, and video (youtube) reflect the hard part of good writing: finding sources that support, and write again in an engaging style.
