Tim spent the first 25 years of his professional career in dual Finance and Process Improvement areas, and The Garage allows Tim to blend his passion for all things mechanical and automotive with his Customer Service attitude and various business talents.  It was when Tim took a position at a local dealership where he began forming his plan to work with people who shared his passions for Customer Service, Teamwork, and the chance to create a really cool place to be every day where nothing feels like Work in a traditional sense.  Tim enjoys learning something new mechanically every day from his Partners and the Master Technicians who make up the team at The Garage.  Tim earned his B.A. degree in Economics from the University of Colorado, and an M.B.A. from the University of Denver.  Feel free to drop in, share a cup of coffee or cocoa, and ask Tim about his soft spot for older BMWs and rusty old trucks!

John began his career in the automotive arena when he was 15 years old and he studied small engine mechanics at Warren Tech.  He moved to working as a Technician at a local Harley Davidson shop where he supported his Professional Moto-Cross career.  John’s affinity for the industry came from his Father who made a lifetime career beginning as a Technician and progressing to a Service Manager at numerous Dealerships and in multiple states.  John has developed a wide network of friends and contacts across the country based on his lengthy tenure at a local dealership.  John has numerous interests and every time he takes up a hobby, he pursues it to the fullest.  Whether he is golfing as a single digit handicap, or taking his customized Jeep to a shooting match, John can be counted on for his warm nature and his open and thoughtful approach to service related issues.  Drop in and ask John to play you a tune on one of the shop guitars!
