Digital Footprint Developer in Corunna, Michigan
Hey everyone! Leland here. I've worn a LOT of hats over the past 35+ years. In fact, I've been working with computers and the internet since their inception (gasp!). I actually began my career as a accountant, which led me to become a "Dispersement Analyst" at General Motors, handling accounts that amounted to over $5 Million a month. (More on THAT here!)
After a near-fatal motorcycle accident in 1986, I followed a career path into Civil Engineering. Starting at the bottom rung as a "Reproductions Technician" (a.k.a. blueprint operator), I peaked as a Sr. CAD Designer in 1995. and went out on my own to open DAI (Draft All Ink), and I've been running my own companies with a couple short stints of employment in between ever since.
During my 25 year career as a Civil Designer, my home office served several Fortune 500's such as: Ameritech, AT&T, Sprint, Omnipoint, Atwell-Hicks, Inc., and Giffels-Webster Engineers (GWE). I even moonlighted as a Karaoke DJ working for "All Star Entertainment" in the mid 2000's. Today most of my design services are provided to those building medical marijuana dispensaries in the U.S.
As for any other life skills or experiences under my belt; I have been trained, certified and/or served in the fields of Automotive Design (1985-86), Radio/TV Production (1983-present), Firefighting (2001-2005), and Fire/Water Damage Restoration - Structural and Electronic (2010-2013) .
As a couple, we ran "Best Auto Spa", a complete full-service automotive detail shop located in downtown Corunna, MI, with around 5 regular employess, from Feb. 2014-July 2015, serving nearly every local dealership within a 25 mile radius.
My wife Jenna and I now call the Shiawassee River our home, where we try to spend our time making the world a little better place. I tend to do most of my work as an all around social media afficiando, under several brands (Best Conceptions Broadcasting d.b.a. BCBLive!™, LelandBestLIVE™, MegabitMarketing™ and Best Little Storehouse™), while my wife keeps it simple under her own her own brand at Best Sensations™
