While growing up, I never had any interaction with automobiles other than riding in them. My Dad was a great mentor and was always willing to answer my questions about why things happened or how things worked. We spent time enjoying the outdoors, building and fixing things, but when the car had a problem, it always went to the local garage.
After high school I launched into college fully intending to major in biology. One day my Triumph TR-4 broke down and being strapped for cash, I had decided to take on the task of fixing it myself. I borrowed some tools, went to do some automotive research at the library and off I went. By evening I had that car purring like a kitten. I was ecstatic! It was at that point I realized that fixing cars was what I really wanted to do.
I got a full-time job as a mechanic at the State of California automotive garage at the age of 20 and took night classes in automotive technology. Life was good! The state garage was limited as far as training and technical growth so I moved on and started as an apprentice technician at a Chevrolet dealership and reached the rank of journeyman technician.
I have spent a total of 25 years at G.M. dealerships and 15 years in independent repair shops dealing with most all car lines. My passions are, and always will be, troubleshooting the tough jobs and assisting others. Throughout my career I have taken on the rolls of technician, team leader, working shop foreman and store manager/service writer.
At home I enjoy communing with my furry feline kids and anything else that has to do with animals, nature and the great outdoors. I think yard work is pretty cool too!
As a member of the ALLDATA tech assist team I look forward to sharing my automotive knowledge and experience to assist you in diagnosis and repair.
