I originally grew up in the suburbs of northwest Chicago, Illinois. You could almost say I grew up in a Porsche. My father always had a passion for the brand, and growing up with his ’73 911 that passion grew on me as well. That ’73 911 was completely rebuilt in high school along with my father, myself and a close group of friends. Once it was fully complete my itch was still not scratched. I ended up buying a ’85.5 944 and rehabbing that, doing some light autocross on the side as well. I started in the industry when I was 15 as a porter with GM. Eventually, I ended up working for the Porsche brand in 2008 which fueled my passion even more, later becoming a Globally Certified Brand Ambassador. Outside of the Porsche world I enjoy spending time with my wife and family. Enjoying the outdoors, hiking, fishing, camping, and water sports is on the list as well.
