When I was young, I had an uncle that was always working on
mechanical stuff at his farm. He didn’t repair vehicles or
equipment for a living but he wasn’t scared to try to repair
anything. He had 3 bulldozers, an excavator, 4 dump trucks, a
Ford 9N tractor and a little gas tractor.
I built my first small engine when I was 8-years old. Of course,
with him giving me guidance and keeping an eye on my progress. I
enjoyed the feeling that I had when I made something work. Since
that day, there was no turning back. I enlisted in the U.S. Navy
and took the path of an electrical and electronic technician.
During my brief time in the Navy, I traveled to 39 countries and
saw some amazing things.
After drying my feet, I worked on cars at a friend’s shop for a
bit. This led me to taking a job at Buick where I was promoted to
shop foreman after just a couple years. At this point, I realized
that I needed something more challenging than working on the same
cars over and over. I moved to an independent shop where I was
hired as a shop foreman. I spent 10 years here, running the shop
and leading some great technicians.
Once again, I was ready to take on even more challenges. I became
a college automotive instructor and taught promising young
automotive technicians for the next 11 years. I mentored some
great students that really wanted to become technicians. It was
an awesome and enlightening experience for me because it made me
remember that I was once there myself.
After more than a decade developing young technicians, I decided
to look for another challenge. That is when I came to
ALLDATA. ALLDATA’s automotive diagnostic team has really made me
feel welcome. I’m excited to be surrounded by some great people
and get a chance every day to help our awesome customers!
