I found myself drawn into the automotive and motorcycle world at a young age, while watching my father work on the cars of family and friends. I guess you could say that I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth, but a wrench. I grew up around street rods, hot rods, and drag cars, making them fast just for the fun of it. My career began working at a tire store and service station, until I landed a job at a Chrysler, Plymouth dealership. At 15, I was working as a heavy line technician apprentice on engines, transmissions, and differentials.

After high school, I graduated in the top of my class from the Arizona Automotive Institute. I passed the ASE Automotive Certification tests, and became the youngest Master Certified Technician at the age of 19. Since then, I have re-certified every 5 years for a total of 34 years working as a Master Technician, totaling 39 years in the automotive field. In those years, I diversified my skills by working in many name brand dealerships: Chrysler, Plymouth, Dodge, and Jeep. I also worked as a personal Technician for Willie Mays, Shirley Black, and Allen Johnson.

In 2001, I opened All Pro Automotive in Knoxville, TN. Quickly, the service center grew into 3 locations, and became Blue Seal ASE Certified. My love of high performance vehicles led me to become a Certified Viper Technician. At a Viper Club event, I met Gordon Ackley, a man who loves performance vehicles at least as much as I do. We discovered that we have the same vision to transform cars to achieve their highest performance capacity, whether on the street or on the track. In 2013, we teamed up to establish MiMC Motorsports, a high tech automotive shop where we are able to use our years of experience, passion, and specialized equipment to fine-tune any vehicle. All in all, our job is to make your dream car a reality.
