    Originally from Escondido, CA,  I moved to Albuquerque to attend UNM and decided to stay after graduating due to the people, slower pace, beauty of the outdoors and of course the red and green.  I’ve been with Lexus since 2005 and enjoy travel, mountain biking, playing golf, and hikes in the foothills with my Wheaten Terrier, Wensley.

    From growing up around my father and his love for cars in Southern New Mexico, I started what would turn out to be a 25 plus year career in the automotive business. As most who know me would agree, I also like to talk.  This combination has led me to be lucky enough to help thousands of clients with their vehicle needs and most have become friends as well.

    I’m originally from San Francisco Bay Area.  I’m a devoted family man and friend to many.  I enjoy making people laugh and I often get teased because I’m fancy about my food and drinks, but you only live once and I’m great behind a bar.  It’s not about the sale but rather the relationship.  My life mantra is “Happiness is a Choice” and “Be Kind to One Another”.

    I’m pretty multi-cultural being born in former Yugoslavia.  Living in Hungary as a teenager and moving to the USA as a young adult taught me that no matter where you live, a place is just a place, but people that you meet along the way are the reasons that make every place a bit better.  I love socializing and meeting new people from all walks of life.  Helping others in general is among my favorite things to do.

    I had been in the retail and customer service field for over 10 years prior to joining the Lexus team in Santa Fe and now Albuquerque for which I have had the pleasure of serving both wonderful cities for two decades.  My love for customer service comes from the wonderful people I serve. It brings a smile to my face talking with and meeting new people and I can’t overemphasize the interesting peers and customers I’ve met along the way. Lexus has trained and taken care of me and what keeps me here are principle centered values.

    I have been in the automotive industry for 30 years. I have worked for other foreign manufacturers and I appreciate Lexus mostly because of the quality of the vehicle. Being “Old School”, I understand that quality and dependability is above all and that is exactly what the Lexus customer gets when they buy the product which is why I have stood behind the product since my first day working for Lexus. On a personal note, I have been with my beautiful wife for 34 years and the both of us have raised 2 wonderful children.
