He is also the Automotive Instructor at the Beck Area Career Center located in Red Bud, IL.

Bruce has extended his automotive expertise into cyberspace by co-founding a website, (, which is geared toward helping people diagnose and tackle their own vehicle problems, as well as provide a forum for other mechanics and technicians to talk and share insights.
