I've written about car audio for Crutchfield since 2003, after four years as Crutchfield Sales Advisor, and 10 years as a music teacher. I'm an avid music listener, with a real love of classical and film music. I love having a great system in my car, and I'll still match the system in my 98 Ford Ranger (may it rest in peace) up against anything else I've heard for great SQ.
Fun facts: I've completed an Ironman triathlon, run the Boston Marathon, and lost on Jeopardy!
I'm a Virginia native from the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains and I've been with Crutchfield since 1999. My first few years were spent as one of our advisors, helping our customers choose new gear. Eventually, I moved to the writing team and spent a decade researching new products and getting even more hands on with car audio gear. As the editor of Crutchfield's Car A/V web articles, I couldn't ask for a cooler job. We listen to music and play with car audio gear every day! Outside of work, I love playing board games & RPGs, scouting, and installing new audio systems for my friends.
