    After a little hiatus I am back at Freedom and excited for what the future has to offer! In total I have worked for Freedom Nissan for 9 wonderful years. When I am not at work I enjoy playing, watching and basically anything that has to do with poker. In addition I enjoy spending time with my Chihuahua and cooking with my friends.

    When I am here at Freedom I enjoy working with customers to help them find the best deal I can. I also enjoy the family atmosphere that we have created.

    My first car was a Toyota Corolla.

    I started in the automobile business 30 years ago, as a rookie sales person, and in 1995 my wife and I decided to move from Boston to Vermont. Since then I have become co-owner at Freedom Nissan where I pride myself on making both customers, and my staff, happy.  When I'm not at the dealership, I enjoy spending time with my wife, children and grandchildren.

    My first car was a 1973 Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

    I am from Calais, Vermont and have been working at Freedom since August 2016. Though I am newer to the dealership my excitement for the product and our customers has made the transition smooth. I love having the opportunity to meet new people on a regular basis. It has been a reward to be able to make customers' dreams come true when handing them the key to their new car.

    When I am not at the dealership I enjoy riding motorcycles, exercising, and working on cars.

    My first car was a Saab 9-3.

    Years prior to settling in Vermont I was cruising around the northeast in my 1964 Chevy Malibu coupe. I lived in New York, Maine, and New Hampshire before deciding on Vermont as my permanent home. 


    When I am out of the dealership, where I have been working since '08, I enjoy playing music, road biking and getting crazy with a game of backgammon.

    I have always enjoyed the great inventory we have at Freedom, and of course the people I work with and those who enter the dealership.

    I am originally from my mom's belly but have moved out and currently live right here at Freedom Nissan! In the winter, I love clearing the snow off the cars with my fellow employees, or as I like to call them friends. I have been here for about four cycles around the sun and couldn't imagine any where I'd rather work.


    When I am not here (which is a rarity) I enjoy snowboarding and dancing to EDM until the sun comes up. I have always loved to dance, and grew up performing both tap and interpretive.


    My first car was a Chrysler 300.
