    I was born and raised in the San Diego area of Southern California. I spent 10+ years in the U.S.Army as a helicopter pilot, after which I began my automotive career as a sales professional. Now, after 35+ years, I find myself at Porsche Chandler and enjoying every minute alongside our wonderful team of automotive professionals.
     
    We pride ourselves in knowing all aspects of the Porsche experience and look forward to providing our world-class service to all. Please stop by and say hello!

    I have a solid history with the Porsche Brand, being with the brand since 2006. I have developed a strong passion for the Porsche brand as well as its history, and the future Porsche is going.  Providing customers with exceptional customer service about the brand, history and technology/features Porsche has to offer is paramount to me.

    I'm originally from Omaha, NE, and have been with the Porsche brand since 2009. I relocated to sunny Arizona in early 2019 and, of course, I love it! I'm an absolute Porsche fanatic and have quite the affection for the mid-engine vehicles-especially the Cayman-and have owned quite a few over the years. My passion is for providing an authentic buying experience that not only exceeds expectations, it creates new ones. I'm very excited to be a part of the Porsche Chandler team, and I look forward to growing our Porsche Arizona family!

    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.

    Aloha! Native to Honolulu, Hawaii I've always been fascinated by cars, fast cars specifically. From a young age, this passion has been developing into a love of all things automotive which has led me to the Porsche Chandler team in beautiful Chandler, Arizona. I look forward to sharing this enthusiasm through the amazing vehicles the Porsche brand represents and the 1st class experience all customers deserve.

    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.

    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.

    I am proud to say that I am originally from the Bay area in Northern California, but I have happily lived in Arizona since 1988. I have been an automotive industry professional for the past 22 years, and I am thrilled to be part of the Porsche family at Porsche Chandler. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling the world and exploring new destinations. Skiing, scuba diving, golfing, hiking...I love it all. I also enjoy a nice, relaxing day on a beautiful sunny beach.

    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.

    In 1983, I moved to the beautiful state of Arizona from my birthplace of Hartford, CT.  I began my professional automotive career in the summer of 1995 working for Porsche. Having been a technician, service advisor and brand ambassador for many years with Porsche, I look forward to being a part of the Porsche Chandler team. I enjoy spending my spare time with my wife and our three kids, as well as catching my favorite sport-hockey, and cheering for my favorite team, The Coyotes.

    I am an Arizona Native, born and raised.  I grew up in North Scottsdale.  I am a US Army Veteran.  I am a single parent to a teenage daughter that is everything to me.  We are very active in the outdoors.  We enjoy hiking with our two Dutch Shepherds, mountain biking, also riding off-road motorcycles (single and double track trails).  I grew up around the automotive industry and road racing.  My Father road raced my entire childhood.  Some of my fondest childhood memories are being with him in the pits at PIR and Firebird Raceway growing up.  I was born with an appreciation of all performance machines whether it be a Porsche, a KTM, or a Trek.

    i was born and raised in Mesa, AZ. Most of my time is spent at the lake or with friends and family. I've always had love for fast cars, which is what drew me to Porsche. After working here, I can't imagine working anywhere else.

    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.
