I went to Universal Technical Institute to increase my knowledge of diesel engines and machinery. I enjoy learning new technology and diagnostic procedures. I began my passion for mechanics in a small engine repair in High School to rebuilding 8.8L Cummins engines and pulling injectors off Caterpillar C-15 engine. I have experience in automotive work, during my career in an independent shop. I began doing transmission and engine swaps and progressed into routine maintenance such as standard break jobs, clutches, tune ups and tires changes.
