In 2000 I was working as a vehicle body launch engineer for an American auto OEM in Silao, Mexico, thinking snarkily that if civilization ended at midnight, I'd probably be okay in Leon (where our hotel was).

I left that company shortly afterward in 2000 to join a competitor (the company I really wanted to be with in the first place), and held a powertrain plant engineering/supervision position for a little while, before joining the vehicle body launch organization. In 2011 I joined the management ranks and moved to China. In 2016 I returned to my current role as an engineering subject matter expert in a management position with no direct reports (which is awesome).

Despite how it sounds, I've not done the same thing for 20 years; in fact, it's been one hell of a wild ride.
