At the ripe old age of 9, my father decided it was time for me to learn how to work on cars.  My mother had just had an accident in her 1968 Camaro and my father decided to do all the repair work as he always did (I wrote a blog about this).  That was the beginning of my love for cars and my official entry into being a gearhead! When it was time for college, my father convinced me that “computers are where it’s at”.  Of course he was right and that set me on the path to a career in Information Technology.  I was fortunate enough to work for several leading computer companies over my 30 years in the industry.  I was in customer support for most of that time and became a top notch troubleshooter in the industry.  At the peak of my career in customer support I was a tier 3 engineer which meant I was called on to fly to customer sites all over the US to help work on complex issues that our field engineers could not solve.  Those troubleshooting skills have served me well during my life and translate to fixing just about anything. In 2016 I decided it was time for a change and started a business in a field that I absolutely love!  I created On Demand Mechanic which allows me to troubleshoot and fix problems, and also gives me an opportunity to get in front of the customer, both of which I really enjoy.  I have been working on cars for 40+ years and no matter the problem or project, I get a sense of accomplishment every time I finish a job.  My children are adults now and I felt the time was right to start my own business.  I wanted to start a business that would not only be fair to our customers but also make it convenient for them by coming to them, on their schedule.  No more sitting for hours in auto repair shop waiting rooms! A few facts about me personally:  I moved to Oklahoma from the suburbs of Chicago in 1978.  I graduated from Claremore High School and college from Oklahoma State University.  My wife Karen and I have been married for 28 years and we have 3 children and 4 grandchildren.  I enjoy working on classic cars and going to car shows.  I am in the process of restoring a 1964 Ford Thunderbird back to driving condition and hope to take it to some car shows in the spring.  My wife and I also like to ride our Harley and enjoy motorcycle rallies like Bikes, Blues, & BBQ in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
