I was born into the Porsche and PCA world, coming home from the hospital in a suitcase on the back seat of a ‘58 356 was just the start of this journey. My father joined PCA in November of 1956. Dad started and grew many PCA Regions. A prize possession of mine is the concours trophy Dad won when I was 6 months old. He discovered diapers are great detailer tools. So I got the trophy.

My first Porsche was a 75 911 2.7 wide body. It was a bit of a “Frankenstein” with no OEM VIN number. I learnt a lot to say the least. A Cayman became the fun car and track car where instructor credentials were earned. Toss in some other cool cars along the way, all a unique experience, The current stable is now 2 ½ Porsches; a 996 that started as a bit of a project is my current daily driver. My wife is a true supporter of my passion just happens to have found a Macan in the driveway with her name on it. (She says I can borrow it). The ½ is a 1998 Porsche Bike FS.
