Richard

15 years of experience
San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose, CA

Hi, my name is Richard McCarthy. I have a versatile mechanical background that spans approximately 15 years. I started out serving 7 years active duty as a turbojet/fan and fuel-related system mechanic/troubleshooter working on flight deck carrier operations for the US Navy. After serving my time honorably, I switched my path from aircraft to the automotive industry. As a civilian, I attained three ASE certifications: A1 engine repair, A6 electrical, and A4 brakes while receiving an Associate of Science in Automotive Technology from City College of San Francisco. From there, I have worked on everything from commuter cars to heavy construction specialty equipment. I love to do engine repair, preventive maintenance work, brakes and electrical. I bring an aeronautical standard to this industry and have the highest integrity forged from three tours aboard the USS Nimitz for Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom.
