My first career was in the insurance business...did a 20 year hitch. After getting burned out with that, I drove a taxi for 3 years, then was hired to be a manager with the company...ultimatedly I became president, coo, and a partner in the company that owned about 100 vehicles - taxicabs, limousines, paratransit vans, small buses, etc. I also obtained my class B CDL around 2004, and drove various buses and so forth part time.
The business got into financial troubles...loss of the major paratransit contract and the uber/lyft cancer. So, I upgraded the CDL to a Class A and became a trucker. I wanted to get away from it all, so to speak.
I was with Roehl for a minute but had a family issue to help with so I locally drove limo coaches, buses, and motorcoaches for a year or so, then got back to OTR with Pride Transport pulling reefers. I became a trainer for Pride and worked with a few students. Now, I'm an O/O leased to Schneider and I'm loving it.
I don't really live anywhere, so I can go wherever the wind blows.
I enjoy taking a day off now and then, staying at the home of a relative or friend. Now and then, I get a motel room.
I list my city as Baltimore since something needs to go in that box, but I don't really have a city right now and don't expect to for quite some time. I am saving my $ for retirement.
I was born in Baltimore and spent my first twenty years in Harford County, Maryland. Then, I moved to Jackson, Michigan...from there to Ann Arbor. I lived in Michigan most of my life, until I was about 57. Now, I live on the road, and take my time off in various locations where my friends and relatives live.
I'm a big fan of the Detroit Tigers, and also the Detroit Red Wings.
