Don't let his large stature fool you; Sam's not scary -- he is an easy-going, happy-go-lucky guy.
Sam is a South Bay local who first became interested in cars because his dad was a taxi driver for over 30 years. When Sam was 16, he began to help his dad maintain his car.
Before joining Hillside Auto Repair in 2018, Sam worked at Jiffy Lube, and then at Firestone Tires, where he became a top performing Store Manager.
He graduated from WyoTech Automotive Technology Program with perfect attendance, and was awarded "First to Volunteer to Work on Cars".
When Sam doesn't have his head under the hood, kicking tires, or helping customers at Hillside, he enjoys fishing, family time and church. He lives in Gardena with his wife and kids.
