"I have been working as a technician at the NBMG since 1988. During the summer of 2003 I worked in Mesquite for about 6 weeks on a project with the local water district to see if we could detect any ground movement / subsidence when they started pumping one of their new wells. I installed monuments, set up receivers, downloaded data and maintained the GPS system. I am now the technician on the new GPS network (MAGNET) that Geoff is heading. We have 40 sites as of last week. I do basically the same thing that I did in Mesuite; drill into rock, install monuments set up the units at different sites, collect data and maintain the network. I also like to drink beer and ride dirt bikes. I have two boys."
