What is your job title and description here at Star Auto Sales?

I recently became the Service Manager for Star Auto Sales after working here the past two and a half years as a technician.

What is your background in the automotive industry?

I owned and operated a 3 bay Sunoco in Rocky Hill and Bloomfield for 15 years beginning in 1983. I also have experience working as a technician for Papa’s Dodge for 5 years and at New Country BMW from 2006-2015 as a technician.

What do you look forward to in your new position?

I am looking forward to getting to know our current clients and build a report with them and spread the word about our honest, excellent work.

What do you like to do when you're not at work?


I like landscaping my home, I love yard work. My family and I like going to car shows throughout the summer. My son has a 2003 Mustang Cobra and we have been working on prepping it for car shows in the future.

My wife and I enjoying spending time at the shore, walking on the beach, finding great restaurants.

What brought you to the automotive industry?

When I was a kid my next door neighbor was a mechanic and I started out watching him. He was rebuilding a 55 Ford Thunderbird and I helped him with it. I learned from him at a young age. I was hooked! In high school, I attended tech school part-time in Middletown. It has been my career ever since.

What is your favorite customer story or success?

8 or 9 years ago I was coming home on I-91 and there was an accident in front of me. The woman drove off the road and flipped over in the gully next to the road. She had two kids in the car. I was able to help her and the kids out of the back of the car before any first responders got here.  It was a great feeling being able to help her.
