I have been around automobiles all my life. I remember handing my
dad tools when I was barely old enough to stand up. I believe I
knew the difference between a 1/2” and a 9/16” wrench before I
knew my ABC’s.
I went to college to get a degree in accounting. After interning
one summer, I knew that being cooped-up in an office crunching
numbers all day was not for me. I came back home to Macon,
Georgia and began working with my dad repairing anything and
everything from motorcycles to semi-trucks. In 1985, I went to
work for the local Chrysler-Plymouth dealership as a technician.
I became an ASE and Chrysler Master Technician in 1994; earning
recognition as the top technician in the Atlanta area for that
Surviving all the “mergers” and “takeovers” that plagued Chrysler
throughout the years, I stuck with the brand and worked at
various dealerships for 32 years. Then this unique opportunity
with ALLDATA came up. It was exactly what I was looking for
because it gave me a chance to give back to the industry by using
my many years of experience to help my fellow technicians.
I enjoy spending time with my family, which includes a 5-year
old, a 3-year old and an adopted dog named Blue. I love fishing
and have been a lifetime member of Bass Anglers Sportsman Society
since the 80’s. When I’m not fishing, I enjoy watching the Braves
As a member of the ALLDATA Tech-Assist team, I look forward to
using my experience and knowledge helping other technicians
diagnose and repair vehicles in a more efficient manner.
