What kind of music do you listen to?

Mostly country, but I like anything with a good beat.

What would be your dream job?

Owning an exotic car lot and being a charter captain on the side.

What’s your dream car?

My life would be complete with a Black 2010 Aston Martin DB9 sitting next to a White 2010 Lotus Exige. But, in the real world, a Genesis Coupe or G35 would be fine.


What’s the dumbest thing anyone has ever asked you?
I work at a marina so we get ALOT of tourists who apparently leave their brain back at the hotel. I get “What time does the 8 o’clock boat leave?” and “How long is the 8AM to 2PM

Just think…these are the people that work at the banks we keep our money in. (Laughing)
Where do you see yourself in the future?
Married with a nice house, a boat, and about 20 cars!
What are some of your hobbiest and interests?
Cars, photography, and fishing just about sum it up for me. Most people would say my favorite hobby is washing my car, then afterwards, taking her for a long drive just to get

pictures of her.
What are some of your turn ons?
A clean car! A solid color, a simple drop, and nice wheels will set any car off nicely.
What about turn offs?
I can’t stand cars with big wings, obnoxious exhaust, chrome everywhere you look, and looking like it hasn’t been washed or waxed since the day it was purchased.
How did you first get involved in the Hyundai scene?
When it was time to tell my ’93 Pontiac LeMans goodbye, I began a very short-lived journey on finding a brand new car. The Tiburon was LOVE at first sight. After that, everyone
was super

helpful in helping me learn all the amazing aspects of the Hyundai world.
Is it difficult and if so, how do you handle being in a male dominated sport?
It’s not difficult at all. In fact, it gets entertaining at times. I love people’s faces when they find my car is driven by a girl. I don’t get cocky about my car and when I open

mouth, I know what I’m talking about.
What percentage of Import models do you think actually know how to tune cars?
Tune them? Probably about 50%. The other half are probably just in it for the modeling.
Should some of the big car shows (HIN, NOPI, etc) have a Female Tuner class?
I’m torn on the idea. Half of me says why should girls have their own class when we can easily beat the guys by competing against them? But on the other hand, it would be fun to

against other girls.
Any final thoughts, comments, or thanks?
Thank you, of course, to Hyundai Aftermarket.org for this awesome recognition and opportunity. God, for giving me my abilities to own a Tiburon and the

knowledge to appreciate it. My family and friends for being so supportive of my interests. My workplace for giving me a paycheck to help keep my car on the road. My dealership,

Hyundai, for being so trustworthy. And last but not least, everyone on NewTiburon.com for helping me with all my questions.
