When I was a kid I spent all my free time fixing cars with my
father, who was a journeyman mechanic. He taught me everything he
I was eager to go to work and soon got my first job at a local
independent automotive repair shop. It wasn’t long before I was a
journeyman technician diagnosing drivability and electrical
problems. Diagnosing vehicle issues was fascinating to me and I
found that I was really good at it.
After seven years of working as a diagnostic tech, I wanted a new
challenge and I applied for a job as a hotline technician. To my
delight, I got a call a few days later to tell me I got the job!
I’ve worked the hotline for OBD3 Solutions for almost three
years. What I like most about the job is that, even though I
provide many answers to tough technical problems, I still learn
new things daily from other technicians. There’s always someone
calling in with new tips and tricks.
I’ve been with the same wonderful woman for 14 years and have
three energetic boys 1, 3 and 5 years old. As you may guess, my
free time is spent with my family. I also love going out to nice,
date-night restaurants, nights out at comedy clubs, and attending
auto races. Once in a while, I get a chance to rent an ATV for a
weekend to explore some of Canada’s great outdoors.
I’m proud to say that I’m part of the ALLDATA Community
Automotive Diagnostic Team. I can’t wait to help other diagnostic
technicians in the field get those problem vehicles fixed quickly
and back on the road.
