    Started out as a delivery driver and stocker for a large pharmacy. Then went to the steel mill, then went to work for Goodyear, went from wrench to store manager. Truck tire sales was next. Started listening to the truck driver stories from the otr guys coming in for tires and said man, I gotta do this. That was in 1973 and still trucking today. It's been a long and winding road.
