Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Clarence Center, NY.
What is your current job title?
I'm a Vehicle Condition Inspector. I write condition reports for cars that dealers would normally send to brick and mortar auctions. I take photos inside, outside, and underneath the vehicle. I'm conveying to potential buyers any issues with the vehicle.
What do you enjoy about working at ACV?
I enjoy being a part of a company that is upgrading the wholesale and auto industry through technology. I also love seeing the company continue to grow and expand. It's all very exciting!
What do you enjoy most about being a VCI?
I love seeing all the different cars, being able to work outside, and making other peoples' lives easier.
What was your journey to joining the automotive industry?
My first job was at BJ's wholesale club until I decided working at a dealership would be way more interesting.
What did you do prior to ACV Auctions?
I worked at Northtown for six and a half years as a lot guy. Then I was a Smart Car representative where I explained to customers how to use the technology in their vehicles.
What’s your dream car?
What are some things you do outside of work?
I do photography and videography for bands, shows, and weddings.
