Born to rural Iowa, Steve was trained at an early age that nothing was free for the asking. If you wanted something you had to make it a goal and work for it. Even as a toddler, Steve immediately had a talent for taking anything apart. After Steve discovered TOOLS, nothing was safe. Steve started working for an independent garage at age 16 repairing everything from farm tractors to foreign cars. After graduating from an auto mechanic tech school, Steve moved to Colorado in 1972 and worked for various dealerships and independents before accepting a mechanic job with the City of Loveland in 1988. Within two years Steve was promoted to Shop Supervisor and eventually to Fleet Manger in 1995. Steve is ACFM Certified, ASE Triple Master in automotive, heavy truck and school bus. Steve's passions are traditional archery, fly fishing and anything outdoors – even writing.
