About Me

I have been an automotive technician since 1999. I worked at independent shops and Mercedes, Honda, and Acura Dealerships.  As a top grossing technician it's all about efficiency for me, whether I am doing electrical diagnostics or swapping pistons. In all my years of experience I am proud of proving that doing jobs the right way and taking care of customers equals efficiency and profitability.

The automotive industry is an essential service to our community. Friends and family rely on cars that are safe and operate properly for their daily needs. Costs to repair vehicles can be an economic hardship for many people. Being an efficient technician means more profits for us but also reduced cost to consumers.

My goals for the future are to promote expertise in automotive repair, strong work ethics, and passion for automotive technology, to the next generation of automotive technical professionals.

  • A.A. Degree in Business and CIS emphasis, De Anza College
  • A.S. Degree in Advanced Engine Performance Technology, De Anza College
