Hyundai Gold Master Technician and Hybrid Certified
Nissan Senior Specialist
GM and Freightliner Fleet Certified
I am a multi-line Master Automotive Technician with thirty-two
years of experience doing what I love – working on cars.
I have an extensive background in the automotive industry. From
automobile and light to heavy-duty truck diagnosis, repair and
maintenance to fleet services, mid-level management and business
ownership, I’ve worn many hats and enjoyed every minute!
But before I get too far ahead of myself, let’s start at the
beginning. From the time I could pick up a wrench, I started to
tinker and take things apart just to see how they worked. I think
I was born with a wrench in my hand. My Father raced winged
sprint cars and midget racers so I’ve became interested in racing
at 5-years old and stayed involved in one way or another my
entire life. From ¼ midget racers up to winged sprint cars and
dragsters, I’ve built and raced them all.
My true passion in the automotive industry really blossomed when
I met my love in 1983… she was a 1967 Z28 Camaro. Yes, you read
that right. A rare number 600 of 602 Z28s that were built in
1967. There were many days and late nights spent modifying and
hanging high-performance parts on that hot rod to drop those ET
numbers. Man, it was fast and I wish I still had it.
I have a beautiful wife of 13 years and three wonderful children
ranging in age from 17 to 34. All of them have followed and
supported my passion over the years in one form or another.
I’ve been tinkering with cars for years and earned my stripes
through working for Nissan, Kia and Hyundai, including nine years
of fleet training. Now that I’m part of the ALLDATA Tech-Assist
team, I look forward to drawing from my years of experience to
help techs efficiently diagnose and repair those hard-to-fix
