I grew up in Ohio and am a proud OSU Buckeyes fan and a long-suffering Browns fan. After serving as an Army Ranger (1st/75th RGR) I returned to College in Santa Cruz, California where I fell in love with SCUBA diving and spent several years teaching and diving around the Monterey Bay.
I am now in beautiful central Virginia and spend my off-time trying to juggle the activities of my Wife and three daughters (and dog, cat, chickens, newts and fish) as well as kayaking and fishing on the James River.
I started working for Crutchfield in 2006 as a Product Tester and now enjoy assisting Customers choose the best solution for their consumer electronic needs ... or to put it another way .. I am an 'Ambassador of Audio and Visual Awesomeness'.
