I have more than 40 years in the motor vehicle industry. Beginning with my time serving with the USMC 1978 - 1982, I have steadily increased my knowledge and skills. I am currently a Retired Supervisor with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority 1982- 2017 My responsibilities include training of personnel in all aspects of vehicle operations, repairs and maintenance. Additionally, I am responsible for the analysis of maintenance trends and the preparation/implementation of solutions to improve WMATA’s performance. I have been tasked with supervising the parts department of WMATA’s three service vehicle maintenance facilities, including procurement of parts, tools, and equipment. I’m a recertified ASE Master Tech that expired in 2016.
