Born Des Moines, raised in West Des Moines. Reside in Clive.

BMWs owned:

Leased one 2009 BMW. I have leased many cars in the past 20 years. BMW, Cadillac, Lexus, Acura… Currently driving a 2012 Chevy Volt.

What made you decide to purchase your first BMW?

I have been a car nut since I could walk. I spent my childhood dragging my dad to dealer showrooms looking at new cars every fall and I collected all the brochures. And, I’ve always read glowing reviews of BMW. Then in 2009, the stars aligned and I found a perfect Montego Blue 328 that had my name on it!

Do you have any fun stories about your car?

The BMW didn’t take too many trips. Mostly to work and home. For some reason it always got comments at fast food drive up windows. “nice car”…I would hear!

What is your favorite car event?

I’ve been a judge at the Salisbury Concours d’Elegance for the past 4 or 5 years. It has to be one of the best shows in the midwest.

Do you have a dream car?

I am lucky enough to own my dream car. It’s a 1967 Lincoln Continental convertible. I’ve owned it for about 12 years and it has many stories to tell! I attached a picture of the Lincoln.
