A finely tuned machine- Eastwood Employees makes us tick
We want to share the great Eastwood staff with you, our customers! We have asked them to fill out the first five questions, and then pick 5 random questions from a “Wildcard” section of questions. We allowed them to answer these however they’d like. You’d be surprised at what some of us have to say!
1. Name and Title at Eastwood? Senior Product Marketing Manager
2. What the heck do you do all day? Make sure customers can find the product they are looking for on the website.
3. Did you come from an automotive background before Eastwood? What did you do before Eastwood? Since age 15, I have owned over 30 cars, trucks and motorcycles. I rebuilt my first engine with the help of a 1970’s Chilton manual. After college I worked in industry as a manufacturing engineer and CNC Machinist.
4. When not talking cars, tools, and restorations all day, what are a few of your hobbies? Riding mountain bike, cooking and getting back into shape.
5. What's your favorite Eastwood product? Why? Eastwood TIG 200 AC/DC welder. Having access to the advanced process of TIG welding at an affordable price is great. I have always wanted a TIG welder in my home shop, but could never justify the expense. The value of the Eastwood TIG 200 AC/DC welder has opened up the door to welding aluminum and stainless for me.

7. What was your first car? 1969 Dodge Charger
8. Other than bills, what do you find yourself spending your money on? Technology gadgets, and bobbing out my V Star 1100 motorcycle.
9. Name a automotive trend that you are happy died or wish would go away? Billet. I respect a well engineering piece of aluminum, but it does not have to be shiny. Having experience in the casting process, I appreciate the classic look of sand-cast parts.
10. Do you have any projects going right now? What are you building, restoring, or a job you are tackling next? 1953 Ford Panel Truck – Going on top of a 1997 Ford Explorer 5.0L AWD chassis.
11. 15. Domestic, Japanese Import, or European? Having owned examples of all, they all break down, they all sucked money from my wallet, and they all put a smile on my face!
