I am an ASE Master Technician and L1 Advanced Engine specialist, Maryland State inspector and Maryland Emissions Repair Specialist, as well as a factory trained AS Subaru technician and General Motors.

I have been a technician since way back -- 1995 to be exact. I bought a race car, although at the time I knew almost nothing about the car and had very little knowledge as to how to work on it. I learned a lot over the years of racing and learned that I had a knack for working on cars. In 1999 I moved to Virginia and started working at a Buick Subaru Chevrolet dealership in Virginia Beach. I consider myself very fortunate because I had the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the best technicians in the industry.

Although I work on all vehicles, I have a passion for Subarus. I enjoy working on and driving Subarus and I am always on the look-out for Subaru vehicles. Taking over ownership of Ray's is no small task and I am grateful for this opportunity. Ray was an amazing man and I am grateful for the small amount of time I had getting to know him and learn from him. People have asked me why I don't change the shop’s name -- that is easy, I am keeping the shop’s name as a tribute to Ray. He put his life into building this shop and what better way to pay tribute to an amazing man.

I am keeping the name Ray’s Auto Repair in remembrance of Ray. I am sad that he won’t get a chance to see what we are accomplishing with the business he started. I was hoping that at some point when he was feeling better that he would be able to be a part of the business again. Unfortunately, God had other plans for Ray.
