I started driving trucks back in 1972. Since my father was also a truck driver I decided to become one as well. In 2012 the Canandaigua Driving School asked me to become a CDL instructor for them and I agreed. I thought that I could pass what I learned to other inspiring students. When I am not teaching new CDL driver’s I enjoy outdoor activities, cooking, and spending time with my family.

I started driving tractor trailed back in 1974. I was raised in a family of truckers and heavy equipment operators. Really I was pressured into it, but trucking has been good to me. About several years ago I became an instructor. The owner of Leonard’s express, Kent Johnson, asked me to help him start a driving school and I’ve been here since then. When I’m not out on the road with new students I enjoy gardening and any time I can get with my grandchildren.

As a high school teacher, I enjoyed teaching and being a Driver Education Instructor during the summer allowed me to continue to work with students in a different environment than the classroom. I still do teach Driver Education part time after school at both Pittsford Sutherland and Webster Thomas High Schools. I became a certified Driver Education Instructor in 1999 and began teaching at Sodus HS during the summer. I was the initial Driving Instructor hired by the Canandaigua Driving School when it was started. In my spare time enjoy playing golf and working on various home projects.

I fell in love with Formula One Grand Prix racing from a young age. Ever since then driving, especially racing, have become a passion of mine. I became a driving instructor to share my passion with others who also enjoyed driving. My career started at the Skip Barber Racing School in 1989 as a Pro Series mechanic which later developed into an instructor for the racing school. When I am not teaching students to drive safely I also present and facilitate at auto shows as well as other automotive marketing events across the country. While I focus on driving fast on the race track my main focus is teaching others to drive well and to drive safe.
