I started Road Sumo back in 2018 with a long-time friend. I wanted a site to share my years of experience working as a mechanic. Many questions I tried finding online just didn’t answer what I was looking for, so I created this site. I have been a mechanic for 20+ years – first at one of the major auto repair chains in the U.S., and then I then started my own small business. I have since sold the business and just focus on RoadSumo.com.

I now have three writers with a combined 80+ years in the mechanic and auto industries. I am the managing editor, overseeing all posts before they are published.

If you have any questions, suggestions, or feedback, please contact me.
