For ten years I worked as a locksmith, 2 years specializing in doors and frames. 2 years of locking hardware and access control systems. I have opened everything from the smallest drawer lock to a time bank vault lock. I have taught others on how to bypass high security locks and safes. Not to mention I have designed and installed complex keyless access control systems in large companies.
Prior to myself becoming a locksmith, I was trained early on by my father’s friend on remodeling. During my divorce, I lived briefly with my fried and his wife. Payment for my stay was to help remodel his rental units and tile the entire downstairs. Needless to say, I did not stay there long.
I have received formal training and hold certification from various companies and associations like DHI (Door Hardware Institute). on top of my formal training I received extensive training in the hard knocks of life.
