About me:

I've been an automotive technician for over 23 years. I'm an ASE Master Certified Technician, Ford Senior Master Certified Technician (1 of 3000 nationwide), and a Volkswagen Certified Technician.

I started out working with a friend after school at his family-owned auto repair shop, and then I went to the Ford Asset Training program that was at Scarlet Oaks. From there I started my professional career working full time at a local Lincoln, Mercury, and Volkswagen dealership while working part time at BP Procare auto center ( now know as Monroe Shock and Muffler). I also used to run my own auto repair shop in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. So, I bring a wide field of knowledge to the classroom--from being a Great Oaks student to being a teacher and from being a technician to being a business owner.

I've worked 23 years in the industry and taught for 16 years.

What I love about teaching is giving back. I had someone who helped me and I want to return the favor.

In my classroom, we work every day...but have fun doing it!
