• My whole life as far back as I can remember has been about cars. From all shapes and sizes ranging from Hot Wheels and model cars, to Go Karts, tractors and ATVs. I was able to watch my father or anyone who was taking apart a car and when they weren’t able to remember where things went, I was able to assist them. Once I realized that my mind worked mechanically and hands on, I started to challenge myself by buying or trading yard work for random non running tractors and piece of junk I could take apart to better understand the inner workings of engines and then re assembled them to running condition. At 13 I bought a 53 Willys jeep frame, axles, engine and transmission. I would spend the next two summers sanding, wire brushing, wire wheeling and sand blasting the entire project, then primer and painting the rolling chassis. Unfortunately I was never able to find a body for it and ended up selling it. The next summer at 15, I was gifted a Camaro and from there on out I was hooked and before I left for college, I had brought home and built 5 vehicles, selling all but the one I drove across country to attend Wyoming Technical Institute to continue my passion professionally.
• Arrived at JBA: I started working at JBA in early 2016. After finding out that they were hiring, I went through a week long, multi day interview and decided to leave where I was to come chase my dream of working on Bad Ass cars.
• I feel like when you are a true car enthusiast you cannot narrow down a favorite. I have love for such a wide variety of vehicles American and foreign, and find beauty in all classics especially from WW2 to Vietnam era cars and trucks. Not so much modern day cars, though I can certainly appreciate the advance in technology, safety and massive amounts of horsepower that is being harvested in today’s cars which was once only dreamed of.
