Bryan is a technician at the Fremont Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, Ram store in Casper Wyoming. Service manager Jason Wagner says, “Bryan brings a lot the company. He is a very good technician and very good with customers. In fact, one time we had a customer who was in a wheelchair that medically was in bad shape and had to get to a hospital in Utah asap. Not only did Bryan help lift the customer into the shuttle van, but, worked until 10 O’clock that night to fix the customer’s vehicle so they could get going to the hospital. This was on a night Bryan was planning on going home early”.
Working in the auto industry for 15 years, Bryan has become an expert in working on engines, differentials, transmissions and automotive electrical. He grew up in Chicago Illinois and initially wanted to be an architect or professional violinist. His favorite music consists of, “a bit of everything…jazz, classical, heavy metal, rock alternative, and old country, basically everything but new country”.
Bryan is passionate about cars and music and when he’s not at work, he’s either spending time with his daughter, working on project cars, or working out. The craziest thing he has ever done he says is, 207.8mph in a dragster.

Asking the question, if money was no object, what car would you buy? Bryan replied, ” A Koenigsegg One:1, no wait…change that, a Bugatti Type 57 Atalante Coupe”
If you haven’t heard of Bryans’ choice of cars, the Koenigsegg One:1 is a supercar that has around 1300hp (1 megawatt at 7500rpm to be precise).1 The Bugatti Type 57 is a classic grand tourer built in the 1930s whose engine came from the Type 59 Grand Prix car. “A rediscovered Type 57 sold for 3.4 million euros at auction on 7 February 2009 at a motor show in Paris”. 2
