About Me

As a graduate of Motorcycle Mechanics Institute, I took the first job available in the Harley-Davidson industry as a service writer at a dealership in Michigan. I really enjoyed working with customers but I really wanted to work with the wrenches. With no positions available at that dealer, I took a position as a technician at a dealer near Cleveland where I spent several years as a technician and also in management. I earned a master level technician status as I attended more technical training at Harley-Davidson University in Milwaukee which is Harley-Davidson’s corporate training facility.

I then decided to move on from the dealership system and pursue my goal of running my own shop. I opened Pearl Performance V-Twin in 2015. I continue to learn the new technologies and products in the industry through study, online research and at trade shows so that I may provide customers with the best products. I am enthusiastic about performance so I spend a majority of my time researching performance upgrades. And it’s all possible through the support of my family.

Feel free to contact me to discuss any repairs or customizations you may be interested in. I would love to earn your business.
