Working in my family business starting very young, my abilities began as far back as I remember. Working all the way through every day during high school, I furthered my automotive and heavy truck knowledge by attending Universal Technical Institute. working at the machine shop by day, I always worked nights at my own shop. Continuously building 4 wheel drives and hot rods for myself and others. In 2006 I took a job working construction doubling duties as a mechanic in and out of refineries as well as low boy driver. Then in 2014, my next venture was too much of an opportunity, landing a spot on the tv show Garage Squad. My role as the "driveline expert" serves the show well. But my duties do not stop there. Blackstone Motorworks was formally introduced and services include taking care of all production for the show pertaining to the mechanical aspect.
This is a tough subject. Favorites range very widely, so starting with my first at 14 years old, my 1984 jeep CJ7 is near the top. That being said I became an avid AMC enthusiast for life. Square body chevys, cummins power, tracked vehicles, semi trucks, cab overs, and any and all oddities. All vehicles have a story to tell. And all mean something to someone. Which makes the decision so difficul.
