    "Vorsprung Durch Technik." German for "Truth in Engineering" and Audi's mantra and the reason behind what initiated my fascination and appreciation for the Brand. I joined Audi in 2006, with the release of the Q7 and R8 in Southern California. Representing a brand that continuously strives to push automotive boundaries on every level and not rest on its laurels, is what I admire so much about Audi.  l am English by birth though spent most of my life in California. I moved to Phoenix in 2016, after four years residing on Kauai. On days away from the store, you'll find Koa (my Rescue Mutt from Kauai) deep in the local mountains or frequently out on Canyon Lake. I am really enjoying all that Arizona offers and are super excited to be an integral part of Gilbert Audi's success.

    I'm originally from Billings, Montana; however, all it took was one visit to Arizona in 2016, and I knew right away that this is where I wanted to be. Outside of my passion for cars, I am an avid sports fan (Go Patriots!) as well as a big fitness enthusiast. In my free time, you can catch me watching a game, walking with my dogs, or at the gym.

    I retired three years ago after a 35-year career with the City of Phoenix where I was a contracts manager focusing on telecommunications. Telecommunications is an exciting field and encompasses cell towers, T.V., radio and microwave communications.  It was an exciting field negotiating and enforcing contracts. Never a dull moment since retiring I have worked as a greeter at a local General Motors dealership and loved interfacing with their loyal customers.  I was very excited to be selected to work for the new Audi dealership just a short distance from my home.  I love the Audi design and innovative technology and look forward to meeting the customers. I have been married for 40 years to a brilliant woman who is a senior credit analyst for a national bank and have one son in college studying accounting.

    Born and raised in Arizona, I am from the Navajo Nation Reservation. I have been a car enthusiast all my life, and if I am not at work, you can find me in the garage or buried into a textbook. My summers are spent on Oahu, Hawaii where my family resides. I love to soak up the ocean and Aloha spirit, but Arizona will forever have my heart. Currently no kids, no pets, just a race car, and a college career.
