Philip Albrecht
Apprentice Technician

I'm from Denver, Colorado and I got into the car industry because I wanted to work with my hands. I have always had an interest with mechanical and electrical repair. This led me to pursue my career as a automotive technician. I have been an automotive technician for around three years so far. I have had the pleasure of working here at Stevinson Imports for approximately 6 months thus far. I attended Arapahoe Community College's Automotive Technology Program and I am the youngest of four children. Most my family is here in beautiful Colorado. I love all types of automotive racing. I like to snowboard in the winters here. I grew up in a family with deaf members and so I am fluent in American Sign Language.

Brenton Dawson
Silver Certified Technician

 I was born in the small town of Alexander City, Alabama and I have one brother.  Growing up, my dad and I would worked on cars - I'd build engines with him and my brother and it just kinda stuck! Whether it was a simple tune up, or building a full blown drag truck, I've just always loved working on cars, or really all mechanics, for that matter. I started at Stevinson Imports in July of 2016. 

Before that, I served in the United States Marine Corps from May 2009 to May 2013 as a Tank Mechanic. I was also deployed in July 2012 to Afghanistan where I, again, was a tank mechanic, as well as a gunner on a truck. Before that, I worked as a lube tech at a different dealership while attending Universal Technical Institute in Orlando, Florida. There, I completed a 52 week program for automotive. My interests and hobbies include going to the movies, hanging out with friends, playing Xbox, or just going for a drive to view the scenery in Colorado. I intend to pick other hobbies such as snowboarding and hiking.
