Left the business accounting world in 1981 when I became a single parent. My passion for cars led me to open "Carburetors Unlimited" in Simi Valley, Calif. in 1981 and I have been active in this business since then. I moved it to San Diego, Calif. in 1988 and then to Phoenix, AZ in 2005. I have been lucky enough to work on and own most of the types of cars seen on the Barrett Jackson Auctions.
I have one Son who also lives in the Phoenix area. I have two wonderful Grand kids 17 & 18 and a fantastic Daughter-in-Law. They are both successful in Real Estate even in these hard times.
I'm hooked on the outdoors. I'm in a truck and camper in the Mountains as much as I can fishing pole and camera in hand.
Pretty much lost everything due to the real estate mess here in Arizona. National statistics don't really reflect the devaluation happening here. In many areas it is more than 70 %.
It's OK as I'm still healthy and loving what I do. I also know that throughout my life God has never closed a door i needed to be open even if I was unsure which one it was. It is truly amazing what faith can do and I am living proof.
