About me: Born and raised in a small town in Wisconsin called Rice Lake. Left home in 1995 to attend the United States Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, NY. I lived in Charlotte (Arboretum) for about six months in 1999 then moved to the Charleston area. I have been working on ships in the US Merchant Marine since 2000 and was recently assigned as permanent Captain of the Maersk Iowa. As with my wife Lexi, my relationship with the RS3 is what I like to call a rollercoaster relationship. Leaving feels like the worst day of my life but can’t describe the feeling coming home to both (;Love you Lexi!).
I am a recent member to ACNA just joining earlier in the year. I attended the Coastal Carolina Tour in March which was a blast meeting so many great people. I made sure I’m off for both big events next year. I have also been active with our local Lowcountry Chapter run by Lawrence Bland Jr. and hope to help him grow our influence in the area. Looking to track/drag the car now and meet more Audi friends. Every time my wife or I see an Audi on the road we have a contest to call out if we spot it first. Audi Life!
