I started my journey in this field while living in Michigan as a youth. I was fascinated with how all things mechanical worked and how to improve them. During high school, I bought my first project car. It was a 1969 Roadrunner and I was dedicated to making it run better and faster than stock.
During the summers, I worked on the family dairy farm repairing farm equipment and throwing hay bales. Working on the farm equipment gave me valuable experience that I used later in my career.
After I completed college, I decided that working in the automotive field is what I wanted to do. I got a job at a GM dealership in Green Bay, Wisconsin where I stayed for the next 30 years. I advanced from a basic line technician to a team lead, specializing in Transmissions and Diagnostics.
After my time at the GM Dealership, I decided I was done with the Green Bay winters. My wife and I relocated to Dallas, TX. That’s where I changed careers. I decided a new challenge was in order, but I still wanted to use my knowledge and experience. I became an Auto/Diesel Instructor at Universal Technical Institute. During the next seven years, I truly enjoyed teaching the future technicians of America about HVAC, Manual Transmission, Automatic Transmissions, Advanced Automotive Diagnostics, Hydraulics, and Refrigerant Transport Systems.
On a personal side, I am married to a wonderful woman and have three great children. During my free time, you can find me at the bowling alley. I love it and I’ve participated in up to three different leagues at once. I also enjoy watching off-road racing and Green Bay Packers Football. Go Pack!
I am excited about joining the ALLDATA Tech-Assist team. I feel that I can continue helping technicians grow, while helping them fix “harder than normal” vehicles.
