Hello everyone. My real interest in the auto industry began in 1978 on a field trip to a trade school in Monterrey, Mexico, where I was born and spent most of my childhood. I completed the automotive program at my local high school and was selected to represent my school at a national competition that was sponsored by Chrysler. To get prepared for the competition, I got a chance to work and practice at a Chrysler dealership after school and on Saturdays. This was my first taste of working in the automotive world and I was hooked.
Shortly after graduation, I decided to move back to Dallas where I began working at different independent shops, including one of my favorites, Dallas Carburetor Service. That’s where I learned to rebuild carburetors for all makes and models.
My first dealership job was at Oldsmobile and I stayed with the GM brand for 13 years. I even sold cars at a Buick store for a summer. But after working on GM exclusively for so long, I wanted to learn about a different manufacturer and moved to Jeep, Dodge, and Chrysler for the next 18 years. While working for Chrysler, I rose to the rank of shop foreman and really honed my diagnostic skills.
During my free time, I enjoy buying and selling houses. I’ve had my real estate license since the early 2000’s. My wife Carmen and I have been married for almost 35 years. We’ve raised two boys and one girl and have two beautiful granddaughters.
I have a passion for the auto industry. As a member of the ALLDATA Tech-Assist team, I find it very satisfying to use my knowledge and skills to advise technicians about how to diagnose and repair vehicles faster and more effectively – in English and in Spanish.
