Background, Skills and Interests
Eryk is a 42 year old with lots of varied skills and interests. I am healthy and able bodied. I have strong mechanical aptitude. I can rebuild an engine, change oil, and service brakes. One of my main interests is repairing and restoring my 1977 VW bus. Swinging a wrench is something that comes natural to me. I am at home fixing your bicycle as well as your car and most anything that needs service or repair. I’m not afraid to work or get my hands dirty. I have vast experience with hand and power tools and I am at home with most types of machinery. I have a basic knowledge of plumbing and electrical. I have done roofing and flooring. I have no problem performing most home repairs and maintenance.
I am a very quick study and generally only need to be shown things once. I can work unsupervised and have strong problem solving skills. If I don’t know how to do something I generally have no problem finding the answer or figuring it out with minimal assistance or instruction.
I have successfully run a mobile DJ service here in Florida since 1999. Performing weddings to back yard barbecues for many years. I can also provide you with entertainment for your guests. I am very comfortable with all forms of technology and can be available for office tasks as well as yard work and grounds maintenance. I am also quite comfortable with and have great customer service skills in a service and retail sales setting.
I posses a Class A CDL with a current DOT medical card and a spotless driving record. I can drive anything with 2 to 18 wheels. I am also looking for an opportunity to get my passenger endorsement and would be interested in an opportunity that would facilitate that.
My hobbies and personal interest are just as varied. I enjoy hunting, fishing, shooting, cooking, mountain biking, road biking, hiking or just relaxing by the pool. I really love just being in the great outdoors and enjoy being surrounded by nature.
Melinda is a computer software developer with a Bachelor’s degree in IT Management and Cyber Security. I bring 5+ years of MS SQL Server Development experience in Manufacturing and Sales domains to the table. I am skilled in requirements gathering and analysis, as well as design sessions to understand the needs of the users. With the ability to meet deadlines delivering results, while working both independently and in team, I am quick to adapt and learn business rules, business process, new business tools and business best practices. I have excellent interpersonal communication, problem solving, documentation and analytical skills.
While I am highly skilled in software development, I am capable of running any campground management software, troubleshooting networks, maintaining computer equipment and I am the front desk gal that all your customers will love. I am outgoing and friendly with a happy demeanor and I am prepared to deal with even your toughest customers with a smile!
