Read My Bio

Owner, Master's School of Auto Body Management

I have been the owner of Trubilt Auto Body since 1997. I have been involved with the automotive industry since I was a child where my parents owned a repair garage and recreational vehicle sales business. Prior to buying Trubilt, I worked as a service manager for several years at a local car dealership. This experience helped me understand the importance of customer satisfaction and quality, which have always been my top two priorities as the owner of Trubilt Auto Body.I enjoy hiking, biking, and snowshoeing with my wife and being outdoors snowmobiling and 4-wheeling. Most of all I enjoy spending time with my family and grandchildren.
