Our Engineering Team
I have been employed at Enginetech since spring of 2010. Born in Oklahoma City in 1965, grew up in Sioux Falls, S.D., landed in Texas in 1976. I have worked in the medium duty truck industry for over many years I have been a Technician, Parts Specialists and Parts and Service Manger. I am the proud father of 3 children and 1 dog. I have been married to my Texas wife for over 2 decades, which makes the annual Texas and Oklahoma College football game a special time in my household.
In my spare time I am a Scoutmaster for BSA Troop 723 in Carrollton, Texas. I am also a 4000 mile a year cyclist and commuter; I am Enginetech’s carbon offset. The best part of working for Enginetech is the experienced team members. Their main concern really is a satisfied customer!!
I was born and raised in Oklahoma City, OK graduating from Southeast High School in 1968. I enlisted in the US Air Force in 1969 and served 4 years. I then ventured into HVAC distribution over the next 14 years. I began my career with Enginetech in July of ’94 learning the ropes as a quality assurance inspector. Currently, I am an Engineering Technician and my duties include R&D, taking tech calls, and doing failure analysis.
I am a Native Texan and proud of it. I have been at Enginetech since April 2011, and currently work here with my husband, Jeff and my daughter, Sierra. In addition, I also have a younger son named Jake and an older daughter named Savannah. I enjoy photography and reading books. I also enjoy playing around with my rambunctious dog, Okie, and lounging around with my two frisky cats.
In my spare time you can catch me playing Words With Friends, or should I say winning at Words With Friends because I am a true Wordsmith. My favorite part about working here at Enginetech is the environment and the people. They really make it an enjoyable place to come each day.
Product Development/Catalog Maintenance
I grew up in small West Texas town near Abilene called Roscoe. My dad would soup up old clunkers and race them at the dirt track in Abilene when I was a kid, so I developed a love for automobiles at a young age. (Getting caked with mud as the cars flew by the bleachers had me hooked from the start.) l originally moved to the Dallas area in 2002, but later moved away for college. I graduated college from New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM in May of 2013.
My family and I are glad to now be back home in Texas and I am very excited to be a part of the Enginetech team. I married my wife in May of 2012 and we have a gorgeous little girl and two dogs. My other interests include sports, traveling, fishing, and learning new languages and cultures.
Quality Assurance and Customer Service
I joined the team here at Enginetech in February of 2017. My previous experience is in technical sales and support for various industrial distributors. I am a gearhead at heart though, and this opportunity is the first time I have been able to talk engines with people AND get paid to do so!
I come from a long line of hobby mechanics and car enthusiasts. My grandpa hoarded 1963 Impalas, and he gave one to me the summer before I turned 16. Some assembly was required. My next vehicle was a 1979 International Scout that provided not only transportation to college, but entrance into an elite band of misfits known as the Texas A&M Off-Road Club. Many projects have since followed, including inboard ski boats, 22re Toyota trucks, more Scouts, a motorcycle or two, etc etc. These vehicles, as well as my brother’s, dad’s, and friend’s projects serve as the basis for my automotive knowledge.
My smoking hot wife is a saint and puts up with my projects, craigslist scores, and horse trading. We have two beautiful children and another on the way! My two-year old son loves cars more than me, while his sister enjoys playing dress up and princesses. We also enjoy camping, fishing, Aggie Football, taking the boat to the lake, and going to the beach. My family is what makes my world go around, I am truly blessed
