am the son of Bill
and Ellen Clark and
the brother of Bill
Clark. I graduated from Ohio State University
in 2006 with a degree in Business Finance
in 2006. I am currently the owner/operator
of two businesses in Columbus: Golden Bear
Lawn Care Ltd., and B&R Automotive.
started Golden Bear Lawn Care Ltd about
ten years ago, just working around the neighborhood.
Currently it is my full time job, consisting
of about 60 commercial and residential accounts.
three years ago I started a project building
a '65 Shelby Cobra. I have pretty much been
a car junkie since I was born; I built models
and played with match box cars as a child,
and now still play with bigger versions
of those very things. In the process of
building my car I met another Cobra owner
and established builder named Bill Dyer.
After completing my car, Bill and I decided
to open up a shop doing automotive work,
but focusing on Cobras. We are working on
three builds right now, which we have had
since we opened up in November. In the coming
months we will also have the opportunity
to build a car for the Ohio Cobra Club,
which I am a member of. Each year the club
builds a car and sells raffle tickets to
benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
I'm not mowing lawns or working on a car
you would probably find me lifting weights,
bowling, at the shooting range, or if the
weather is nice, burning the tires off my
Cobra. I also love to travel, which thankfully
is something I can do quite a bit of during
the winter months since there is no grass
to mow. This January I went to Phoenix with
my mom for the Barrett-Jackson car auction,
and then in March I went on a cruise to
Grand Cayman and Cozumel. I took a little
extra time and stayed in Tampa with my Uncle
so we would have enough time to make it
to Siesta Key, where my family has vacationed
for the last 25 years. It is also nice to
see Aunt Shirley and Uncle Earl's old condo
we stayed in for so many years. It is a
second home to everyone in my family.
