I am an Agent of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, assigned to the Enforcement Division. All that means is I am a state police officer who investigates crimes and regulatory issues in licensed gaming establishments. Think trooper without the freeway.

But I do have showgurlz!

I previously retired from the St Louis Metropolitan Police Department after 28 years. I moved west 5 years ago, and began my new career. 33 years total in law enforcement this November.

Retired after 20 years working on missile guidance systems in the USAF . Started my second career in auto body and painting . And spent the last 19 years doing R & D and engineering for a Cobra replica manufacturer . When that company was sold and moved to Texas I retired for good . I still do some work from home but mainly I relax and enjoy doing nothing for a change .

Line tech for Dodge dealer for almost 25 years. most of it as a driveability specialist + trans specialist.

Serv mgr at the last basically called me a liar , I told him to shove it and walked out. That was 2 -1/2 years ago,, I opened my own shop . Specializing in Classic car maint and restorations. On top of selling parts for classic cars, all the time specializing in Mopars ( explains the user id now doesn't it )

I work for myself and by myself . I get there when I want to to and leave when I want to . Doesn't make a ton of money but it's the happiest i've been in the last 10 years
