I spent my first twenty five years in the automation business working as a Rockwell Automation Distributor Specialist helping electricians, technicians, and controls engineers implement automation solutions using Allen-Bradley PLCs, PACs, and HMIs, as well as Rockwell Software SCADA and MES products.
These days I'm self-employed as an automation educator, programmer, and consultant. And I'm also the author of the internet's most popular independent automation blog, The Automation Blog dot com, where I enjoy discussing automation products and challenges with people from around the world.
