I am a native of Maryland, grew up in Damascus. I received my certificate in Automotive Technology from Gwinett Tech in Georgia. After finishing school, I came back home to work on a large commercial fleet as a master mechanic and shop manager. After 18 years of turning wrenches, I was ready for a new challenge. Over five years ago a sales opportunity came along in the towing and recovery market and I never looked back. The combination of sales experience and in-depth mechanical knowledge I can give my customers is a winning combination. I love getting my hands dirty and learning as much as possible about all of the equipment available on the market. This guarantees that I can recommend to my customers the products that will best fit their needs. I am WreckMaster certified and am always looking for new opportunities to expand my working knowledge of the towing and recovery industry to better serve my clients. I am involved in Maryland’s TRPM group, and an outspoken advocate for the towing industry. I am excited about the partnership between Jerr Dan and East Coast Truck & Trailer Sales. This combination is a great fit, and I look forward to expanding our sales area and serving the customers of the mid-Atlantic region of Maryland, Delaware, and Northern Virginia.
