Hello everyone. I have worked in the automotive service and repair industry since 1975 when Nissan was Datsun and gas was cheap!
My first 12 years were spent learning the trade working in Datsun/Nissan dealerships.
Coming up through the ranks working for Nissan, I learned a lot about the technical side of auto repair and the finer points of shop operations. I decided it was time to open my own shop, Pro-Touch Automotive. I spent the following 18 years growing a successful business and taking care of my customers.
In 2004, I started teaching at Wyotech in Sacramento. For the past nine years I taught an array of automotive technology courses including my favorite, Advanced Automotive Diagnostics. In that course, I prepared students to apply for, and attain, their Test and Repair Smog certificates.
My daughter, Deanne, followed in my automotive footsteps and is now a store manager for a Bridgestone/Firestone service center. I’ve enjoyed 35 years of being married to my wonderful wife, Tina, and I love to go fly fishing whenever I get the chance.
Now that I’m a Diagnostic Consultant with the ALLDATA Community, I look forward to helping techs in the field be successful.
