ASE Certified Master Automobile Technician (15yrs)

My father was an engineer for the military aerospace industry so from early on, I have been interested in anything mechanical or electrical. He introduced me to the world of how things are designed and how they function. A career in the automotive field followed due to his influence.
At 16, I got my first automotive job as a general service tech at a tire chain store. I used to hang out with the diagnostic tech and remember him saying that I was different than the other techs because of my ability to grasp the concepts of diagnostics.
With the money I made, I purchased my first car, a 1973 Pontiac Ventura (Not a Nova). I still own it to this day! It has transformed into a drag car, which I race on the weekends. After High school, I went to Lincoln Technical where I was valedictorian of my class.
After graduation, I got a job working at a GM Dealer. I learned a lot, but felt there was more. I moved on to used car recon where I honed my diagnostic skills. I have had multiple positions since then leading up to my automotive diagnostic consultant position at ALLDATA.
When not at work, I enjoy hanging out with my wife and our 2 Australian Shepard’s. The four of us like hiking, scuba diving, snowboarding, fishing and restoring cars. I have hiked the Grand Canyon rim to rim and completed the 223-mile Ouachita trail from Oklahoma into Arkansas. Currently I am restoring a 1970 Challenger and 1967 big-block convertible Camaro.
I am excited to be part of the ALLDATA team and to assist technicians when they really need help. A service like this is invaluable when stuck on a problem.
