I've been in the Automotive Repair Industry since 1978. I was a combination bodyman/painter, I later became a body shop manager for a multi-line dealership. Then I taught Automotive Collision Repair at Manhattan Area Technical College for many years. I started in Paintless Dent Removal in 2001. I have always chased hail, The only time I ever did route work was filling in for a guy in Colorado for a week while he was out of town, I prefer hail, but the travel away from home for so long does get old. I don't have a portfolio of my work, I never felt the need to brag. I'm thankful for all this industry has done for me as I've worked all over the United States and in many foreign countries. I have made good friends all over and I appreciate each and everyone of them. I hope in some small way I can be a good ambassador for our industry through some of our professional organizations.
