"Why am I a Special Expert for MGPHO? I’m not really sure, I think I’m ‘just one of the guys’. I believe that at one point in the day each of us has a moment of genius and at another point each of us has a moment of oops. To answer your question, probably my knowledge of manifolds, regulators, alarms and fittings are my greatest strengths and perhaps the reason that MGPHO bestowed me with this honor. "
