About Dave Eastman

As an auto repair advocate, I’m on a mission to facilitate improved delivery of auto repair services by the auto repair industry. I’ve worked in the industry my entire career. It’s been great “work” but now I want to have some fun. The Auto Owner Story podcast fuels a desire to hear and share fun, entertaining and interesting stories from auto owners who have a great story to tell.

Since 1997, my passion has led me to offer training and consulting services to automotive repair shop owners and their employees. In 2010 I added developing and optimizing websites to help repair shops brand and market their business. 2017 marks the addition of the Auto Shop Connection and Auto Owner Story podcasts and websites, along with the Dave Eastman blog.

I’ve lived in the Boise Idaho area since 1980 with a few short stays away from Boise. In 1984 I married Jan, a Boise Idaho native. We have four children and eight grand children.
