Engineering and Technical
Kelly Dorf, Manufacturing and Assembly
A resident of Beaverton since 1978, I have worked many types of electronics technician jobs over the years including a 13 year stint at Tektronix, and 20 years for a model railroad company. So its only natural my spare time is consumed by tinkering with electronics, or my model railroad. Prior to Covid, I tutored 7th graders at OMSI, teaching basic electronics and soldering skills.
