I’ve always been fascinated with the mechanical aspect of cars and pushing the limits of vehicle performance. Some of my fondest memories as a young man are wrenching on cars with friends, hanging out in my neighbor’s garages and of course, drag racing at the local raceway.
A 66 Mustang was my favorite car. I spent every pay check making it go faster and look cooler.
My automotive career began in 1975. In the first few years of learning the trade, I enrolled in the automotive program at Consumes River College and worked for Grand Auto on the parts counter. Shortly thereafter, I began working as a technician for Goodyear and Firestone; getting valuable hands-on experience.
In 1985, I went to work at a Cadillac Dealership. These were exciting times as I was ready to take on greater challenges and advance my level of expertise. Over the next 22 years, I invested in continuing education, attained numerous ASE Certifications and continued to learn everything I could to sharpen my diagnostic skills. I found that resolving complex issues was very satisfying.
As my career advanced, I began looking for new challenges. I was ready to give back to the industry. In 2006, I began teaching the next generation of automotive technicians at Universal Technical Institute. I quickly advanced to teaching the Nissan Advanced Training Program. Teaching and sharing the “tricks-of-the-trade” not found in any text book was very rewarding.
In my spare time I enjoy playing softball, mountain biking and exploring new places. But, most of all I enjoy spending time with family and good old-fashioned BBQ’s and pool parties.
I am honored to join the ALLDATA Tech-Assist Team and really enjoy helping other ALLDATA technicians throughout the country – researching, strategizing and fixing vehicles.
