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!
As a teenager, I started adding speakers and amps to my '77 Plymouth Duster back in the late 80s. I've been with Crutchfield since 1999, where I began as one of our advisors, helping our customers choose new gear. After a few years, I moved to the writing team and spent a decade researching new products and getting even more hands on with car audio gear. Now, 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! On the personal side, I'm a Virginia native from the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Outside of work, I love playing board games, scouting, and installing new audio systems for my friends.
