About me

As long as I can remember I have wanted to be a mechanic. What really sparked the interest was when I was in first grade and the VRC broke. My dad and I dismantled it, figured out what was wrong, fix it, then reassemble it; I loved doing that. It was what I wanted to do for a living ever since.
