David Lyon retired disabled veteran of 22 years in the military. Starting as a mechanic working on many types of vehicles in several garages around the world for 12 years. 6 years as a Special Forces weapons expert and then the final 4 years as a Special Forces medic. After I retired I worked as an independent contractor for 14 years overseas providing security related work.
I have always been an avid hobbyist when it comes to wood working and building things. My hobbies include building outdoor walls with integrated BBQ grills, Pergola's, finishing my own basement on my first house and then the ultimate building my own 5000 square foot house. Over the years I have made many improvements to the house and one of them was installing an epoxy flooring system from one of the big box stores. Needless to say, I was not satisfied with the quality or the durability of that flooring system so I started looking for other options.
That is when I ran into Blake Evanson and discovered Garage experts. I was so convinced by what Garage Experts has provided, that Blake and I decided to go into business together and start our own franchise.
Blake Evanson is fundamentally a seeker. Being an innovative creator is what drives him to always find ways to increase efficiency and make lives smoother. He has learned to blend the country lifestyle, he was raised in, with his love of technology and improvement. If you could find Blake on the weekend he'd be off-roading, building, camping, playing sports, cooking, eating, exploring, and inventing with his wonderful girlfriend and their 2 wolf hybrids.
In college he set out to be an international corporate attorney between the US and China, and after years of school, and working in corporate sales and the service industry, he came in contact with 2 small business owners. When comparing the lifestyle and changes between them and the attorney's... he knew being an entrepreneur was his future. After years of chasing the next promise of success, and the next one, and the next one, he came to work for a Garage Experts Franchise and saw that finally here was a company he could create, innovate in, have true confidence in his products and services, and create the family lifestyle he dreams of.
Meeting a business partner that can create a symbiotic relationship together was the last piece for making that dream alive. In meeting David Lyon, it was evident that their goals aligned in a way that has created a business that can be proud of its relationship to our community and give you a garage that will make you fall in love each and every time you a come home.
