I have lived in the Southwest Virginia all of my life and love to call this beautiful part of the country my home. I am a very avid sports fan who enjoys many different sports, but if I had to pick basketball would be my favorite to watch and play. I enjoy every type of motorsport on this planet, but my passion is in drag racing and ATV riding. During the summers my dad and I spend many weekends racing both of our drag cars (84 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS, 94 Chevrolet Lumina SS). I also listen to many different types of music; if you suggest it I will give it a try. I developed a passion for different electronics at a very young age starting with video games and developing into a wide array of different gadgets and what we like to call toys here at Crutchfield. At the age of 15 I installed my first car stereo in my first car with the help of my dad. From there I was always volunteering to help other friends with installs. Now working with Crutchfield I am able to enjoy an exceptional amount of electronic technology and to me this is a dream job because I am dealing with technology that changes every day, so I am always learning something new and testing new products to develop my own opinion.

Abe! Dude! Thanks for all your help. In just a few seconds you were able to find all the parts I needed to install a new AVIC-5000NEX in my 2014 Honda CR-V, and put it all in a cart making it a click of a button for me to order! Crutchfield is lucky to have you. You rock!!!!!!

Abe was excellent to work with. We needed cables connecting an older version Bose radio (RCA plugs) with newer iPhone. Very knowledgeable about the products, easy to talk with, and answered all of my questions and provided me with suggestions. Got me in the correct area and I was able to order appropriate cables set. Live chat feature made requests & responses easy to execute. Great feature. Abe made it all possible!!

Being a nonaudiophile, I was a bit skeptical about the home theater system I had pieced together from Crutchfield. Before I hit the SUBMIT button, I had a chat with Abe through their CHAT feature. Abe looked through all of the speakers and receiver I had chosen and made a couple of recommendations of his own. In the end, he helped me realize that I had made a great choice in audio equipment. The whole order showed up within 3 days and I couldn't be happier. Sounds amazing! Everything from Korn to football to movies sound fantastic in my awkwardly large living room. Thanks, Abe! Will absolutely buy from this company again in the future.

Abe helped me pick the right navigation screen, camera and made sure I had all the working parts to get my father what he needed. Friendly, nice and overall extremely helpful. Thanks, Abe! Everything is now installed and he loves it.

Abe was excellent to work with. Very knowledgable about the products, easy to talk with, and answered all of my questions and provided me with suggestions that really lead to me purchasing a new head unit for my vehicle. I will definitely be seeking Abe's expertise and help in future purchases.

Abe was very helpful in helping me make the decision on the entire home theater setup. I had no clue on what speakers to select for the whole setup, and he was able to suggest and recommend what fits in my budget without trying to sell me the higher end and more expensive stuff. I think without me telling him, he grasped the level of experience I had and what budget I would like to go for. I am very happy so far. Now that I have ordered, I'm waiting to receive the setup and I hope it sounds as great as Abe suggested it would.Thanks Abe!
