About work: I have felt during my 29 year career in the automotive repair industry that my team and I are contributing to society by making sure our clientele are safe while travelling in their vehicles. Making sure families are safe is paramount to any repair business, and I take great pride and focus in what type of work we produce.
After work: I enjoy spending every minute possible with my wife and two children. I have been fortunate enough to have my kids allow me to coach them in baseball, football, softball, and basketball. I love walking around town and being referred to as “coach” by one of my former players. Now that my kids are in high school I have shifted my focus from coaching to playing, I am on two adult baseball teams in several different leagues around the Sacramento area.

I remember the first time I experienced this feeling and I feel blessed to work in an industry where I can recreate these moments again and again.
