In 1989 I started my automotive apprenticeship at Shacks Holden. The work there involved servicing and repairing most types of vehicles, mainly Holdens. In my spare time I restored a few vintage cars for myself.
I then moved to Dixon’s Auto Tuning in Rockingham, working on all makes and models including European vehicles, Japanese imports, petrol and diesel vehicles, tractors and even golf carts! One of my favourite things there was working on rally cars and restoring older cars. When the owner was away I ran the business and enjoyed the interaction with customers and also helping in the training of apprentices.
In 2002, I started at the R.A.C as a Vehicle Inspector and later became the Senior Inspector which included a lot of time as acting supervisor. I like to stay up to date with current vehicles as this helps with my job.
