I attended DeSales High School and shortly afterwards I enrolled in the U.S. Air Force where I served at Mather AFB in Sacramento California for 8 years. After separating from the Air Force I became an auto sales consultant and did so for 3 ½ years when I was moved into the finance department. I moved back to be with my family and friends in Louisville in April of 2004. I reside in Hikes Point with my better half Kim and wonderful daughter Rachel who is a senior at J-town high school. I am JR Vice Commander at the St. Matthews American Legion where we help provide assistance for all of our current military members and veterans. I now have over 24 years of experience in the auto business and would like to put my knowledge of finance to work for you. Feel free to call me with any questions you may have regarding financing on all of our great vehicles.
