    My wife (Ann) and our 4 beautiful children reside in Altoona. Ages 20,18,10, and 9. I was born and raised in Missouri Valley. Attended college In Kansas and Missouri. I have been in the Des Moines area for the last 19 years and been in the car business 18 and ½ of those years. I have worked with the manufacturers Ford, Kia, Mitsubishi, Suzuki, Saab, Mercedes Benz and of course the Ultimate Driving Machine BMW. I promise I did not have anything to do with the demise of Suzuki and Saab. I am excited for the opportunity here in Des Moines and especially with BMW. I look forward to making tons of new friends.
