What's your role at Mercedes-Benz North Shore?
My role as an Automotive technician mainly comprises of inspecting and maintaining vehicles, with a focus on automotive diagnostic, electrical, and programming work. This can range from completing preventive maintenance such as, engine tune-ups, oil changes, tire rotation and changes, wheel balancing, replacing filters. I am incredibly passionate about the field and enjoy learning something new every day on the job.

What is an interesting fact about yourself that you would like to share?
When I immigrated to New Zealand in 2006 from South Korea, it was quite a bit of an adjustment/culture shock. Now 12 years later, New Zealand has become my second home and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are your interests and hobbies?
In my spare time, I love to travel and explore new places in New Zealand with my family and friends. Aside from discovering popular destinations and creating new memories, I am a massive foodie. You can find me on the weekends trying out new cuisines or cooking various types of dishes from all over the world.

You can have one Mercedes-Benz for the rest of your life. What would it be?
That’s a no brainer, a Mercedes-AMG C 63!
