    I have been employed at Sharpe since January of 1997.  I was born in Pennsylvania, grew up in Ohio, served in the US. Army after graduation, and lived in Michigan for the past 24 years since leaving the military.  I started at Sharpe as a new Buick salesperson in 1997, moved to MINI sales in 2008, and have served as the General Sales manager of Sharpe for the past 6 years.  I live in Rockford with my wife Erin, and our 3 children Alison, Charlie, and Brennan.  In my free time I enjoy watching my children compete in sports, traveling, and reading.  I look forward to the opportunity to help with all of your automotive needs!

    I’ve been employed at Sharpe since 2017. Born and raised in Michigan, I spent most of my youth Up North or in Metro Detroit before moving to Grand Rapids for school.  I attended Aquinas College where I started all four years on the tennis team and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business and Marketing.  Some other hobbies I enjoy are hiking, disc golfing, skiing, and driving my 3 Series around town.  In the next few years I look forward to owning a house, getting a dog and traveling abroad.

    I have been here at Sharpe for 12+ years, specifically since the MINI Coopers arrived in Grand Rapids. I am originally from Grand Rapids, however I did live near Traverse City for a few years. When I am not here I enjoy everything outdoors especially travelling both domestic and internationally. Some of my hobbies include hiking, biking, adventure motorcycle trips and off-roading. In the future I plan to continue travel to countries and States that I have not been to yet.

    I’ve been employed at Sharpe since 2017. I’m originally from New York State and moved around the country; California, Texas, NY again and Michigan. I served in the US Marine Corps Reserves during Desert Storm spending time in the Philippines and Okinawa, Japan while attending Eastern Michigan University where I earned a B.S. in Industrial Distribution and minor in Marketing. I’ve enjoyed several careers including law enforcement, public insurance adjusting, and contracting MDU cable agreements for Comcast. I had a desire to move to West Michigan to enjoy the lake shore, hiking, camping, exercise, anything paranormal/metaphysical and time with friends. I’m glad to be a part of the Sharpe team.
