I started working in the Automotive Industry at the age of 12 in my uncle's shop.  I have spent my life in or around the auto industry.  After high school I attended Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology in Boston.  I received an Associate's Degree in Science with a major in Automotive Technology.  I worked at a Ford dealership for a few years and then decided to go back to school.  I attended Northeastern University and received a Bachelor's Degree in Science with a major in Mechanical Engineering.  After working at Westerbeke Engines and Generators.  There I designed, assembled, and tested generators for marine, fire and stand by units ranging from 5kW to 95kW.  After Westerbeke I decided to use my skills and teach them to new minds.  I returned to Benjamin Franklin Institute and became a Professor in the Automotive Technology Program.  I spent seven years there.  In February of 2015 I decided to open a mobile small engine repair business.  I enjoy figuring out why mechanical machines don't work and helping out customers at the same time.
