    Curious if you have enough speakers. I’m an engineer at a small aerospace company,, Royal Engineered Composites. We manufacture advanced composites for various first and second tier manufacturers such as Boeing , Northrop Grumman, Bell Helicopters.
    I also have a non traditional background as I worked as a chef for many years prior to becoming an engineer.

    Have a great day.
    Very best
