Re: Welcome Fellow Trekkies! The GTD Get to Know You thread

Hi, I am Bill, 57 years old, and retired after 29 years in commercial nuclear power. I now work part time as an Industrial Safety Supervisor/Specialist and travel to different commercial nuclear power facilities in the Northeast and Midwest to provide safety training and oversight of workers conducting plant maintenance activities.

I was 11 years old when I watched my first TOS episode in 1966: "The Corbomite Maneuver" and became hooked on Star Trek forever. My primary Trek interests are TOS and TNG TV and movies.

I got into replica prop kit making and collecting back in 2008 when I bought my first prop, a HMS TOS Phaser from Rodd.com. I try to combine my basic electronics and laser knowledge into my prop builds. I currently have several ST Phasers equipped with lasers. Tricorders are my latest interest with several on the work bench from the TNG era to build. I also enjoy building scfi models primarily Star Trek and Lost in Space. You can see some of my props on Youtube (Syfypropmaker).

I am also an active volunteer firefighter in my community for nearly 40 years now and also enjoy photography and auto racing.

Thanks for having me aboard!
