My life in automotive started early. I was fascinated with tearing things apart and trying to reassemble them. I enjoyed watching my dad working on cars and doing oil changes. By the time I was in high school, I was doing services and minor repairs for friends and family. Right after high school, I joined the Pep Boys family for the first time. It is there where I learned to use shop equipment and other machinery which gave me the experience to be able to work at other places. I left the company and went to work at several dealerships and eventually found a job working at a performance shop where I learned about the world of racing and aftermarket. After many years, I am very happy and proud to be back with this company and able to work in helping other make their dream cars a reality and share the passion I have with cars.
