    What are other job roles you have performed in the past?

    When it comes to Detailing, the thing that drives me is the satisfaction of a finished product. Working with a team designing and coordinating a project on the computer, then seeing the final result in the real world is something that is amazing and very rewarding to me. Also working with a group of co-workers that want to teach each other and make each other better on a daily basis motivates me to learn and put in my absolute best for my team and my company.

    What do you do for fun in your off-hours?

    I have 3 very different kids and an amazing wife, so with that being said, I have a lot of hobbies.
    My son Christopher is the oldest at 15 and we like to ride our SE Bikes in big groups for 20+ miles. it keeps us healthy and close as he gets older.
    My son Izaiah and I love watching scary movies and going on outings to see places we've seen on TV.
    My daughter Lexy and I love to get out of the house and search for Pokemon on our phones.
    As for me and my wife Diana, we don't get much free time but every year on our anniversary we travel to a new city and visit their most popular brewery where we collect a flight glass to add to our collection. We collect one every year and this year will be our 5th.
