How did you get to be a professional driver?

“Obtained my CDL over 20 years ago. Tried many different driver positions until I found my first tanker job. I was hauling cooking oil and tequila for a regional food grade company in the Midwest. When we moved to Oregon in 1998, I landed a job with a small 'mom and pop' environmental business. I started as a driver but moved up through dispatch/office administrator and, eventually, Plant Operations Manager.”

Why did you decide to join Clean Harbors?

“I was out of the environmental business for seven years. My wife and I were looking to make a move and Phoenix was the target. I applied at Clean Harbors (Safety-Kleen) and was offered a job with open arms. My passion for recycling and saving the environment is important to me, my kids and their kids.”
