I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia and graduated high school in 1978. I was active duty from 1978 to 1982. Shortly after, I moved to El Paso in 1985 after which I began working at Hoy Family Auto on Subaru and Volvo in January 1986. I began working on Mercedes-Benz in 1993. In 2012 I became a Volvo Expert Certified technician prior to the franchise being sold. Currently, I hold the Star Certification with Mercedes-Benz and still serve in the U.S. Army Reserves. I am married with ONLY 10 kids.
