What do you care about as a technician?

I think Diagnostics is the most fun and rewarding part of my job. I put more emphasis on the quality of my work than the speed. I take extra precautions to ensure things are done right the first time, no shortcuts. I think being thorough is important.

What’s your favorite vehicle?

I don’t think I have just one. I’ve always loved Mustangs, and Mitsubishi EVO X

    Ford SVT Certifications.

What do you care about as a technician?

  • I really enjoy seeing a job come out perfect, and I love seeing my customers happy.

What’s your favorite vehicle?

  • My favorite car is my 1965 Ford Falcon, which I’ve had for over 20 years.


What training and certifications do you have?

I have 2.5 years of hands on experience at this shop, training under Josh and Ben. I’m planning on getting my ASE Certifications in the near future.

What do you care about as a technician?

My main goal at the end of the day is to have done a job that I can be proud of. I enjoy being able to get into a job and see it through start to finish. Also being able to get in and see how different things work and operate together, first hand. One of my favorite jobs to do here is Heads/Head Gaskets on the 6.0 Powerstrokes. It’s very rewarding taking the whole truck apart, being able to put it all back together, and start it up.

What’s your favorite vehicle?

It’s hard to choose just one. The first muscle car I loved was a 1967 Chevy Impala, which kind of sparked my interest in cars. I also very much love ‘65 Mustangs and Shelby Cobras. My one true love, though, is my 1965 Ford Econoline van, which is also my first car.
