    After moving to the Phoenix Valley in 2014 from New Jersey, I have discovered that I could never go back; I love it here. I have proudly served numerous customers over the past 30 years of my career in the automotive industry. In my eyes, the auto industry is more than just a job; it is a passion in my life, and I enjoy every aspect of it. When I am not focused on customer service, I enjoy spending my spare time with my beautiful wife and three amazing boys.

    Although I am originally from New York City, it has been a pleasure living in Arizona since 1966. Ever since I sold my 1st car in 1969, I guess you can say that the automotive industry has been the life that I share with my loved ones. Aside from my focus on customer service and the automotive industry, my passion is collecting fine and historical timepieces. The only thing that surpasses my passion for collecting timepieces is the admiration that I have for precision engineered Porsche vehicles. I am proud to be able to represent such a prestigious and well-respected company such as Porsche Chandler.

    Originally, I'm from Toledo, Ohio but later I moved to Arizona in 1978. While growing up in the city of Mesa, I remember always loving fast cars and dreaming of owning a Porsche 911 just like the one on the poster I had pinned to my bedroom wall. My parents owned a small dealership and I myself have been involved in the automotive industry since 1993. After a long day, I enjoy going home and spending time with my two dogs and my pet tortoise.

    I was born and raised here in Arizona. Most of the time I spent growing up in the east valley of the Phoenix area, with exception to my time spent at Dartmouth College where I not only received my college degree, but I was a Division 1 Pitcher for the college baseball team. I take pride in being a "people person" and cannot wait to serve our clients in a truly exceptional way and share my passion for the Porsche brand.

    My childhood was spent growing up in Southern California, while my 20's were spent in Michigan. I've been in Arizona for over 10 years and I absolutely love it here. I've been an auto enthusiast my entire life, yet I have only been involved in the automotive industry, as a profession, for the past few years. I've owned numerous performance cars, but my Porsche is my prized possession. We have a very solid team environment at Porsche Chandler. We individually and collectively look forward to making your visit with us memorable and informative.

    I grew up in Scottsdale, Arizona after moving from New Jersey at age 7 with my family.  After graduating from Arizona State University, I served in the US Army, which took me to Hawaii for three years.  When my service was completed, I moved to Austin, Texas, where I began a career as a police officer.  I have spent about seven years in the auto industry with experience in sales, service, and finance. With my son heading off to college I returned to Arizona, where I can play golf and attend Arizona Diamondbacks games.

    Growing up I loved performance cars.  One of the first cars I owned was a new Porsche 924S.  My love and excitement for the brand grew from that driving experience.

    As a child growing up in South Florida, my passion for automobiles started on the day I laid eyes on the beautiful Porsche 928. After that point, I was hooked. Prior to moving to Arizona, I earned my degree from the University of Florida and I am a proud member of the Desert Gator Alumni Club. Together, my wife and I stay very busy raising our two beautiful children. This past year I enjoyed spending numerous hours being involved with Barrett-Jackson, Gooding & Co. as well as Sotheby's Auction. After living near the ocean, in the mountains and now in the desert, I am happy to make Porsche Chandler my new home.

    Growing up in a small village in Germany, as a child I always had a passion for automobiles. After completing high school, I went to work as a technician. My entire life, I have been interested in anything mechanical; specifically with how things work. I guess you can call me a tinker-er. In 2007, my wife and I left Germany and relocated to the beautiful and sunny state of Arizona. The people and the weather have been so welcoming since we decided to make the Phoenix area our permanent home. In July of 2013, I proudly became a citizen of the United States of America. Now in 2016, I find myself once again drawn to the automotive industry and have the amazing opportunity to work for the world's best brand, Porsche. All I can say is that I love what I do and where I am in my life. Any spare time that I can manage, you'll find me on the road, taking in the beautiful scenery in the state of Arizona.

    Originally from Hemet, CA, I moved to Arizona in September of 2017, and have been loving it ever since! During my free time, I enjoy going to the gym with my boyfriend and taking our dog, Duke, out hiking. A quote that I like to live by that was once told me is that "those who think they can, and those who think they can't, are both usually right." - Confucius.

    I was born and raised in Anaconda Montana and been in AZ for a year and a half. I love football and basketball. My basketball team is Boston Celtics, and I've always pulled for Seahawks or Broncos with football. Now that I'm here I definitely pull for the Cardinals & Suns as well. I have two grown kids, Leah and Cade. The thing I like most about Porsche is the people and the new friends I have made. I also love the atmosphere at Porsche and the customer care we give to clients.
