I have been with Porsche since I was 7 and practically grew up in the back seat of 1972 911 and learned to drive a manual transmission on a 944 turbo. I’ve been employed at Porsche since 1999 and I’m a Certified Brand Ambassador in both sales and management. I’ve taken European delivery of multiple 911 models and visited the Porsche factories on multiple occasions. I’ve driven on the Nurburgring in Germany and other world-famous tracks in Europe. I participate in Track day events at many of North America’s best tracks such as Lime Rock, Watkins Glen, Road Atlanta, and VIR. I’ve restored and shown multiple award-winning muscle cars and I’m currently racing a Shelby Cobra replica. I love to stay active by going to the gym, skiing, snowmobiling, and riding motorcycles. When I’m not at the office I like to spend time on the slopes and hiking with my girlfriend Kim and her French Bulldog named Brick.
I have had the opportunity to be a part of the Porsche brand in various capacities for the last 6 years as a certified global brand ambassador. From sales consultant, to finance manager to sales manager I have maintained a passion for the Porsche brand and the clientele. Spending time on the Porsche car configurator is one of my favorite ways to understand how these amazing machines can be optioned. I hope to have the chance to build the Porsche of your dreams with you some day. My favorite Porsche would be a 1992 RS America in maritime blue.
