As a true and passionate German car enthusiast I started my automotive career here in Southern California in 1995. Porsche has always been a brand I’ve always admired and have been extremely passionate about.  I was always so enamored with Porsche that I was excited to join the Porsche family and Porsche of Downtown LA in April of 2010. I look forward to meeting with each and every one of our clients to ensure an exemplary experience and I hope to meet you soon as well.
