    WHO AM I? 

    I'm an explorer, dreamer, developer, thinker and so much more. 

    Everything I've accomplished and done in my life has been guided by my curiosity, creativity, and diligence.

    I will use this shop space and my personal experience in the industry to teach and guide the up-and-coming generation of technicians. I've learned so much good over my years as an automotive professional but also a little bad so, it's my hope to launch my students into the automotive industry while knowing what mistakes not to make early in your career and how to build a successful one. This all starts with the want to learn and practice good work ethics. I'm constantly changing and evolving my class to best suit my students.
