Interest

As any father would be I am involved with my children as the chauffeur, mediator and friend to make sure they get the best life I can provide. My son is currently in the Eastern Michigan Young Marine program. My daughter is currently training in a martial arts program and advancing quite well.

My other passion is physical activity to keep myself in great condition and to be a role model for my children. I currently train in an advanced aerobic  kickboxing class locally and have been enrolled for 4 years now.

Objective

As a self employed/motivated individual  since 1998 I have aspired to succeed and maintain a good quality of life for myself and my family. As the economy has been strained in recent times it has become increasingly difficult to sustain the quality of life that my family has been accustomed to. As the main provider of the household I am compelled to use my knowledge acquired over my nearly quarter century of automotive experience and apply it to a perspective long term employer.

Summary

As a business owner I have learned through trial and error how to conduct day to day operations. It has sustained my family quite well. The time has come, however, to leave the self employed world and seek employment in a stable work environment. My willingness to bring my best efforts forward to a perspective employer are offered here as a testament to my passion to be a great provider for my family. Any knowledge learned from further education or experience can only be a positive move to me and my family.
