I am the owner of East Range Automotive in Hoyt Lakes, Minnesota. I am a long-time resident of Hoyt Lakes and am excited to serve the community with my new business adventure! I am a 2001 graduate of Mesabi East High School and in 2003 graduated from Mesabi Range College with a degree in Automotive Technology. 

A few years after the closure of LTV Mining, I decided to join the United States Air Force and I was stationed around the world. I spent my time in the USAF working as a jet engine mechanic.

After completion of my service, I came back to Hoyt Lakes and managed a local small business for 5 years. After graduating with my Business Management degree in 2020 from Mesabi Range College, I decided to pursue my dream of opening my own automotive shop.

I’m looking forward to serving you now and in the future!

Mission Statement: Provide a five-day a week automotive repair facility dedicated to quality and timely service for the residents on the East Iron Range and surrounding communities in northern Minnesota.
