The Wests Networking Thread

Welcome to the Wests Networking thread!

Here's the place to post your virtual business card, info on job leads or jobs wanted, or other business-type services offered in the Western area (Arizona, California, and Nevada).

To avoid spamminess, the rules are simple:

1. One post per business/service offering/contact - be sure your contact info is accurate and if your services are highly local (i.e. no mail order), be sure to include a city and state in your post.

2. Text only, and no large/overly colorful/downright obnoxious fonts, please. Think "clean Yellow Pages listing" to keep the visual noise level down. This thread is to serve as a reference - it is not another obnoxious advertising space. Nobody wants to repeatedly scroll through visual spam like this every time they visit the thread.

3. No replies will be permitted in this thread - if you see something you like, want or need, all inquiry/discussion is to be carried on outside of the thread via PMs, email, or phone. It would be a good idea to state your preferred method of contact in your post.

4. If you are offering or looking for work, please delete your post once you've landed your dream employee/job.

5. Any overt spamminess (including but not limited to non-western-regional services, abuse of contact info, etc.) will be struck down swiftly by the hand of Mod(erators). If things get out of hand, the whole thread will be punted to Vendors.

6. Play nice.

While we may ride globally, doing business locally just might help out a fellow rider - so post 'em up!

update 4/18/2011 *removing old stale post for found positions etc, removed duplicate entries.
If folks would update there post of nuke the old one when wishing to an update we can keep this thread clean and informative. Thanks!

I'll hawk the company I work for...

PG&E is hiring. Like many businesses they have an ageing workforce. Go to WWW.PGE.COM to see what available and feel free to PM me if you have questions.

Typically the jobs are in the geographical service territory. That is about 3/4 of California. Eureka to the NW, Burney to the NE, Santa Maria to the SW, and Needles (at the Aridzona Border) in the SE.

There are Jobs out there.

Update: I retired in 2011. Only advice now is go to the website.

I practice real estate litigation and nursing home defense. On the real estate side, I represent commercial landlords. I handle matters against tenants (evictions and breach of lease) and defend landlords against ADA lawsuits. I also defend nursing homes against claims of elder abuse and neglect.

I'm always willing to chat with ADV members who have legal questions, just remeber that I only practice in California.

I have represented a few ADV and SDAR members (I won't name them for obvious reasons) and all of them have bought me beer afterwards. Or at least they've promised to!

Level Five Graphics, Inc.

I'm a 25+ year veteran in the advertising industry, and have run my own business, Level Five Graphics, Inc. for 14 years. I've also just moved to the Bay Area in January of 2009.

I am a graphic designer, commercial and technical illustrator, and photographer.

I have expertise in most areas of print design and production such as: annual reports; books; periodicals -- newspapers, magazines, and newsletters; real estate marketing; package design; and direct mail.

My illustration work covers a variety of styles, but is primarily technical: some science and medical; lots of real estate marketing illustrations; and tons of Photoshop seat time doing realistic illustration.

Photographically, I do a lot of portraits, a lot of real estate, and I occasionally shoot weddings for friends, but not commercially.

And, I have a pretty unique photographic specialty: I climb to the top of construction cranes and take skyline panoramas for high-rise apartment marketing materials.

Please visit my website for a comprehensive on-line portfolio:

Oh, and I do welding and fabrication on the side, which is always useful for the Adventure Rider.

Please email (on my site under "contact") or PM me through ADVRider if you'd like to get the ball rolling.
When they say Harleys are for 1%ers, I don't think they mean guys who sell crank and get in bar fights any more.

Cool we are up for this.

Yes, weaving. We weave custom rugs in LEATHER or wool. Up to 16 feet wide no seam. Hand made by us on foot and hand operated floor looms right here in Claremont California. Flat weave or pile. We generally deal with interior designers, but will sell wholesale to ADVRiders! We offer help in choosing design and color. We can match/compliment/contrast other decor. NOT inexpensive, but one of a kind art you can use created by a Master Weaver. Our products have been in Architectural Digest MANY times.


I buy motorcycles for incoming travelers and rent room to them here in Claremont, 35 miles east of Los Angeles. I do motoprep. Also guide or trip info. Short term storage. Start your trip out right, have your bike ready and waiting, saves time and money. I have many satisfied customers and can provide references. I can get you a Title and Insurance. You can leave with Title in hand then be south of the Border in a couple of hours! No need to wait three weeks for a Title, no worries, no DMV hassle. I do it all.

First contact:

Need a Job? - Website work available

Just tryign to tap the Advrider crowd here for talent. I am looking for a Flash based web designer to build a single website to showcase a home that will coming up for sale in the Woodlands. It will not be a searchable real-estate site, or anything that complicated. This will be a single home, but I need the website to encompass a bit of video or at least links to video (HD footage & photos will be provided), descriptions for every room, details about the builder and contact information etc. If you are in Houston, and have some indoor photography skills as well, then ever better. A large degree of artistic freedom will be given to complete this project.

If you know of any Flash/web designers that need a side gig feel free to send me a PM or a link to their online portfolio. There is no rush on the job and would be perfect for anyone who has a full time job, and wants some side money.

Land Surveying in SoCal

My company performs mostly commercial land surveying services from ALTA title insurance surveys to topographic maps to construction layout. Expert witness work too. We have state of the art GPS equipment for larger projects. Full insurance.

For friends (an ADV member would be a friend) in need I will do residential surveys or refer you to a good smaller company, whichever is more cost effective at the time. I am happy to give advice about what to ask a surveyor when you hire one.
