    I have been working in the automotive business for 19 years, and have been with Hoffman Auto Group since 2007. I take pride in creating a personal and positive experience for each person who enters a Hoffman dealership. I live in Lyme, CT with my wife and two children. When not at work, I enjoy pushing myself to improve my Brazilian jiu-jitsu technique. Our family is also quite involved in motorsports, and I crew chief for my children's quarter midget race team and try to get on the track a few times a year myself.
