What was your first job in the industry?

I started in the industry when I was 16 years old as a tire and lube technician at Burt Brother’s Tire and Service in Park City, Utah.

What do you like best about your current position?

My current position allows me to stay in touch with our customer base regularly and spend time with people who use our parts on a daily basis. I am a car guy through and through, so I jump on every opportunity talk with fellow enthusiasts. 

What word or two best sums up your personality?

Passionate and enthusiastic

What are you currently reading? 

After the amount of reading to complete my MBA earlier this year, I swore off reading for a little bit, but in all honesty, I peruse aftermarketNews.com (Thanks Ethan!) daily and you can often catch me reading Car Craft and Hot Rod magazines in my free time.

Favorite quote/motto?

“The harder you work, the luckier you get.”

Any advice for someone just entering the industry?

This industry has more opportunities and avenues than most realize. The best way to continue to grow is to get out there and network. As you get more connected to the industry, it only becomes more fun and increased opportunities will come your way. If you are passionate about what you do, the opportunities will present themselves.
