My mentor and I in 2018

I started in automotive when I took Auto Tech back in high school at Lake Braddock.  I wasn’t too great on the academic side and barely graduated, but my family still pushed me to go to college.  I entered into the NOVA Automotive Cooperative education program where I was hired during my first job interview at Cowles Ford in Woodbridge and ended up graduating Summa Cum Laude.

I’ve held only automotive jobs since I was 16, and I continue to enjoy the many facets this industry has to offer, especially the technical and social aspects.  My goal as an instructor is to give students the same great mentorship and education as I had in order to give everyone the best chance of success no mater what their automotive avenue happens to be.
