    About Me

    I’ve been in the car business 30 years. Started in a parts store, working part time while in high school. Eventually moved on to selling cars, but my real calling was finance and insurance. Guess I’m good with numbers and details.

    Customers say I’m extremely thorough and explain things in an easy-to-understand manner.

    Specialties & Interests

    Grew up in Canton, Ohio. Graduated from Kent State with a BA in History and Psychology. While in college, went to Ft. Lauderdale for spring break. That ended winters in Ohio. Visited friends in Southern California and loved it. Went back home, packed my Honda 750 and headed west. That’s a long ride without a windscreen.

    I’m a Dodgers fan. Cal has been home most of my life, but I still root for the Cleveland Browns.

    I don’t consider myself handy, but I’ve been known to tackle DYI projects, such as building an addition on my porch. Seems I picked up a few skills from Dad by osmosis.
