Cars have always been a hobby of mine starting with my Matchbox collection as a kid back in the 60's. My dad was a big influence and taught me how a vehicle operates, as he was a "Shade Tree" mechanic. In college I took a job at a local auto detail shop. That turned out to be my start in the automotive business. I enjoy meeting new people and always try and give an honest and "down to earth" shopping experience for the customer. I guess that rubbed off on me from my days as an Eagle Scout. Ryan Auto Mall is a family owned business, and we think of the customer as family, so that philosophy blends in well. We pride ourselves on being here for the customer before, during and after the sale. My favorite hobby is motor racing, and I attended the Indy 500 and other big races for many years. I guess I'm just a car nut!
