I have been repairing appliances for 38 years and consider myself a Renaissance man. I am the proud father of two daughters and my 11-year-old keeps me young. I love fixing things and taking things apart, and I have dealt with the many problems related to homeownership and keeping up the yard and garden. I once jumped into downtown Austin with a parachute carrying the American Flag for Lance Armstrong and George Bush. I also organize the STAC golf tournament which raises money for charity. I am an employee of Sears Holdings Corporation. Professional Degrees and Certifications: I have attended the University of Houston, studying Political Science and Journalism. I participate in ongoing training courses given by Sears and manufacturers to stay current with new appliances.
