Insured & Factory Certified Technicians
Born and raised in South Florida I grew up with a deep appreciation for our tropical climate and the water, while developing a fascination with all kinds of high performance engines. After graduation from high school, I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. During my six years of service, I received training in complex electrical circuits, as well as, extensive experience with satellite subsystems and computer networks.
Upon completion of my military service, I was honorably discharged, and I returned home to South Florida. It was around this same time that the marine diesel industry was transitioning to the more complicated, electronically controlled engine systems. This afforded me the opportunity to pursue a career that included my passion for high powered engines, while still utilizing many of the electrical skills that I had acquired in the military. I began working on marine diesel engines for a well known and reputable dealer in the West Palm Beach area. Over the following years, I trained under and worked with some of the best and most experienced diesel technicians in the industry. I received multiple factory certifications and quickly became respected for my talents and abilities. In time, I became the best technician the dealer had to offer.
During my tenure I was consistently trusted to be completely in charge of the most difficult, complicated, and demanding jobs. I gained extensive experience with today's computer controlled common rail engines as well as the mechanical engines of years past. From basic service and maintenance, to full scale overhaul, to complex electrical troubleshooting, I could always be counted on to figure out problems and execute my duties without fail. I was regularly flown to remote locations, traveling to multiple destinations along the U.S. East Coast and all over the Caribbean, as well as, Central, and South America. Finally, after 10 years and parting on the best of terms, I left the dealer at the end of 2013.
I founded Palm Beach Marine Diesel with the intentions of continuing my commitment to superior quality, while incorporating my personal vision and ideas into a company of my own creation. I still hold the core values of integrity, dedication, & excellence, that I learned in the Air Force, in the highest regard and I always conduct my operations in accordance with those principles. I am a father, and a husband, who believes that a man is only as good as his word, while my work ethic and technical competency are second to none.
