Eric grew up going back and forth between Texas and Moab, Utah. His interest in automotive repair started in his family's shop when he was 8 years old. At 16 he worked as a Lube and Tire Tech in Texas. Eric moved to Colorado 7 years ago when he started his career with Union Pacific and worked on the railroad. After meeting his wife and starting a family life, Eric decided to end his career with Union Pacific so he could be home with them. Eric always dreamed of being more than a Lube and Tire Tech and wanted to advance to becoming an Automotive Technician. He started his new journey after settling in the Grand Valley 5 years ago and attended Intellitec College where he graduated at the top of his class with a 4.0 GPA. With his certification in Automotive Repair & Diagnostics, Eric worked in the service department at a local dealership for a couple years. Finding his career at a dead end at the dealership, he sought the open position at Car Tech Automotive & Diagnostics, Inc. Integrity, eagerness to learn, positive work ethic, and refreshing motivation, Eric has been a valuable addition to the Car Tech family.
