I want to start by saying thank you to everyone who has helped me with my product knowledge and put up with my enthusiasm for the brand and product line up for all these years. I have been part of the Porsche, Audi, Volkswagon family since I got my drivers license at the age of 16 and since then I have been hooked on cars, specifically Audi. After getting my degree in Automotive Science it was in my blood and there was no turning back, I had become a “Car Guy.” My family had to endure all my late nights in the garage wrenching on cars and my wife knew first thing Saturday morning I would be late for breakfast because I was washing my car from the night before and getting it ready for the weekend. Now some years later it seems my love for all things automotive have started to pay off. I have always been a great believer in doing what you love and the success would come with time, and as it turns out that is true. After competing in Seattle for the Regional level of the Audi “Q Factor” walk around competition, I am now advancing to the regional finals in sunny Las Vegas, Nevada on August 18th 2009. My fellow Brand Specialists at have been very helpful with getting me prepared, so thanks Guys! I will keep you updated on the outcome and let you know how things go.
