After studying Automotive Technology at Montgomery County Community College in Rockville Maryland in 1990, I started my automotive career at a local Alfa Romeo dealership. Despite that challenging experience, I stayed in the auto repair industry. After about a year at Alfa Romeo, I landed a job at a Buick dealership.
Leaving the dealership world for the independents just before OBD2 hit the market, was a good move for me. I liked working on different makes and models and enjoyed the family atmosphere. In fact, most of my career has been spent at independent, family owned shops.
In 2002, I loaded up the family and moved west to California, mostly to escape the Maryland humidity in the summer and ice in the winter… and I’ve worked in Sacramento and Elk Grove ever since.
I’ve focused primarily on Domestic and Asian vehicles during my career, with an emphasis on emissions, drivability and electrical problems. In my free time, I do a lot of reading and other nerdly pursuits. I look forward to the opportunity to use my years of experience to help other techs with their next diagnostic challenge.
