    Started in dealerships in 2001 as a porter while going to Nashville Auto-Diesel College (Lincoln Tech). Graduated in 2002 and started as a technician with Mercedes-Benz of Nashville. Wrenched for 9 yrs and was Master Certified. Moved the parts tech counted in 2011. Left Benz to become a Parts manager for Nelson Mazda in 2013. A year later became the Service and Parts manager. In July of 2015 Nelson sold one of its stores and we combined, so became the Service manager only until I left in 2018. Then went to Mercedes-Benz of Music City and was wholesale parts manger for 2 years. March 2020 decided I wanted to work on cars again, boy was that a mistake, too much had changed since I last wrenched. Started at Porsche of Nashville as Parts manager in July 2021. My hobbies now days is just golf, I used to be heavily involved with the local SCCA region with autocross racing since 2014, but have slowed down with that since my son was born in 2020. Since he has come into the world its been a life changing thing and I love every minute I get to spend with him and my wife.
