Born and living in the SF Bay Area most of my adult life, most of my earlier career was in the corporate Telecom and IT field. I spent 20+ years working for various large companies such as Pacific Bell and Charles Schwab where I supported the client base and their computer systems. I reinvented myself the first time 15 years ago when I decided to go into the auto industry. Being a car guy, the role of car salesman came naturally to me and I was successful almost instantly. I loved selling Audi and Porsche and everything that came with it. It was fun for a long time.
“What I enjoy most is being able to actually show a new gun owner that’s never even held a gun before that owning a firearm doesn’t have to be scary or intimidating”.
