    I have been selling cars since 1998, and was fortunate enough to join the Sunnyside Toyota Team in 2010. I grew up in Lakewood and graduated from St. Edward High School. I attended Miami of Ohio and The Ohio State University for my secondary education. I now reside in Lagrange with my wife. We are blessed to have 6 wonderful children, and 6 amazing grandchildren. I bleed Ohio State Buckeye Scarlet & Gray; am still wishing I was born earlier in life to witness a Brown’s Championship; and still can’t believe we did not win a World Series in the 90’s. I love to golf and maximize my green fees by taking as many swings as possible. My wife and I enjoy our garden every year, and spend weekends by the fire pit with our friends and family. What’s my ride? The Toyota Tundra Double Cab!

    I started out in the auto industry by working on my first car with my dad; anything from learning how to change filters, points, spark plugs, and tires to replacing brakes and exhausts. Over the years, I’ve worked in parts departments for various franchise dealerships including Honda, Nissan, and Toyota; written automotive parts catalogs; handled Research and Development, Quality Control, and the purchasing of raw materials for aftermarket part manufacturers. My career at Sunnyside Toyota Scion began in 1996 handling the parts in our collision repair center for the first seven years and has evolved into “wearing many hats” today. When I’m not helping Sunny save you money, I’m baking sinful cheesecakes, muffins, and brownies for my friends.

I grew up in Maple Hts, and now reside in Brunswick with my high school sweetheart and our 2 lovely daughters.

    I have a background working with children, sales, and management. I chose to come into this industry because of my past experiences buying cars. I never understood the phrases or terms that my sales consultants were using. When I asked questions to get a better understanding, I felt demeaned by their answers, and rarely got the information I needed to have it all make sense. I pushed myself to learn, so that way I could help the other people out there who have also had similar experiences. My mission is to help you find a car you love at a great deal, with a full understanding of everything you need to know.

    I call Elyria my home but have had the pleasure of living in San Diego and Saratoga Springs NY. When I’m not spending time with my husband and 2 children, or working, I enjoy playing video games and singing karaoke with my friends! My dream is to travel around the country and go sightseeing in my dream vehicle – the Toyota Highlander! I’m excited to join Sunnyside Toyota and look forward to helping find the right vehicle.

    I have been with Sunnyside since 2018, and am enjoying my time here. I graduated from Brunswick High School and I currently still live in Brunswick. Back in 2016, I married my high school sweetheart and we now have a son. Before joining Sunnyside, my background was in culinary and management. Sports is my passion, specifically basketball, and often times you will find me playing just about anywhere in northeast Ohio. I am not here to give you the traditional car salesman vibe, but to make your car buying experience a pleasant one!
