About Michael

My passion for anything with an engine started when I got my first motorcycle at the age of six. I have been riding on the dirt or street ever since. I bought my first truck at fifteen, started my career at a Pontiac, Mazda, Fiat dealership at a young age and haven’t left the automotive world since.

I am a multi-line Master Automotive Technician with 37 years of experience and have an extensive background in the automotive industry. Over the years, I have held many different positions, including technician, shop foreman, service manager and fixed operations director of a five-line major DFW dealership.

As vehicle technology has changed, I have always stayed knowledgeable about these advancements. I am excited to join ALLDATA as an automotive diagnostic consultant. There is never a dull moment here and every day I look forward to assisting technicians across the country. I feel this is a perfect opportunity to use my years of experience to help other technicians with their diagnostic challenges.

In my spare time I enjoy playing golf, going deer hunting and spending time with my wife. We can be found at one of the many local golf courses on any weekend.
