Growing up, I would fix bicycles, dirt bikes and lawn mowers,
which later evolved into fixing family and friend’s cars.
Eventually, I took what I learned and found a job as an oil
change tech at Jiffy Lube. After a short time, I landed a job as
an apprentice technician at a local Nissan dealership. It was a
great job and I spent 21 years working for that same Nissan
Other than factory certification classes and emissions training,
I am self-taught. Every day in the shop was a learning
experience. My favorite part of the job at Nissan was diagnosing
difficult problems – the harder the better.
Now, 26-years later, my position with ALLDATA has given me a
unique opportunity. I get a chance to use my years of diagnostic
experience to help other techs. My goal is to help them fix cars
faster and right the first time. It is an awesome job!
My hobbies are renovating guitars, playing guitar and writing
songs. I also like fixing motorcycles and going on two-wheeled
adventures. My son and I spend a considerable amount of time at
the lake with our pedal boat and the new kayaks.
