    661-952-2181

    I was born in Redondo Beach, CA and moved to Colorado while in 6th grade. I lived next to the highest flat-top mountain in the United States with over 300 lakes. I moved back to California in the late 1980s and have been working in the automotive industry for over 20 years. I could work anywhere, but because of the transparency in the way we, at Toyota of Lancaster, disclose everything up front, I would not consider working anywhere else. Honesty is the best policy.

    661-948-0731

    I grew up in the San Fernando Valley and currently reside in the city of Palmdale. I have been a local resident since 2001 and my family and I love the A.V. I started in the automotive industry in 2004 after having served in the U.S. Marines for 12 years. While in the Military, I was able to travel all over the world; I have visited Japan, Korea, Canada, Germany, and Kuwait and helped protect American interests during the war in Iraq. I have been in the auto industry since 2004. I have excelled as a sales consultant, financial services manager and assistant sales manager before moving on to being a floor manager at the giant Toyota of Lancaster here in Lancaster. During my 12 year military career, it was my privilege to help preserve the American way of life. Now, I am extremely proud to be able to help our local community with their car-buying needs. My goal is not just to help them find a vehicle that suits their needs, but also to earn their loyalty for life. On a personal note, I have been married since 1992 and my wife and I have two children together. My all-time favorite book is Gates of Fire by Steven Pressfield; I highly recommend it!
