30 years ago I started working for Honda and I can't imagine working anywhere else. I enjoy meeting new people every day. I am a member of the Auburn community; you might see me and my family at the grocery store or catching a movie at the local theatre. When I'm not working I love spending time with my grandson!
I started out in the car business in 1999. My favorite part of working in the car business is being able to help people. I recently moved to the Auburn area and I love living here. I enjoy the beautiful scenery and the fun restaurants. When I'm not working I spend as much time with my son as possible.
Internet Sales Manager
My goal is to sell cars to friends, not just customers. I strive to make a friend with everyone I work with and that includes my fellow co-workers, as well as, each person I help in the car buying process.
Over thirty years ago, I started my career in the car business as a sales consultant with Honda and I am proud to be back with Honda for the last 4 years now. I currently hold the highest honor with Honda as a Gold level sales and leasing consultant. I am excited to share my expertise and love of the business with all of my customers by helping them find not only the car they need, but the car they want.
When I'm not at work I love spending time with my family. I have 6 wonderful children and I have been married to the love of my life for the last 14 years. You might see me and my family out shopping in our Lincoln neighborhood or enjoying Sunday Mass at St. Joseph's Church.

My motto in life is to see the best in everything. I'm a happy-go-lucky guy who loves the car industry.
I've been in the car business for 7 years now. I started out as a detailer and moved my way up to being a salesman 4 years ago. During that time I have learned a lot about Hondas and had the opportunity to meet some wonderful people. Currently, I am a Silver Level Salesman with Honda. I received this honor from Honda because I am dedicated to creating a positive experience for all of my customers. I show them the vehicle they are interested in, explain things in detail, and make sure they feel comfortable with the entire process.
When I'm not at work, I'm usually cheering for my favorite team, the San Francisco 49ers. If I'm not at home watching the game it means I'm in the stands with a few of my buddies at Candlestick Park. If you are a Raider fan, I will still help you.
