I was born and raised in Bethel, Connecticut where I am currently attending Western Connecticut State University to finish up my Bachelors of Business in Management Information Systems. I hope to continue furthering my education with a Masters in Business Administration soon after.
My first car was a hand me down from my parents at the age of 16 and it happened to be a B13 SE-R. Like most teens of that age I was much anticipating getting my license. If I only knew at the time that this car would be the start of what would be an ever growing interest in all things Nissan. After graduating high school I got a job at a company that was earlier known as Custom Maxima and what was later known as Custom Enterprise upon its succession. My already building knowledge of Nissan related material was put to use where I was able to assist in the customer service department. Within the company I was also part of the R&D of potential new products, and maintenance and development of the website CustomEnterprise.com.
In 2003 I traded in my first car for a 2004 Sentra SE-R auto. Unfortunately, that May of 2004 I was involved in a side impact crash, totaling my beloved new car and fracturing my clavicle. As soon as I was on my feet I went back and purchased a 2004 SE-R Spec-V as its replacement. While the concentration of my knowledge is of the Sentra field, I have a draw to anything Nissan. My recent purchase of a 2008 3.5 Altima Coupe in July 2007 is what brought me to the NICO community. I enjoy talking with other members about our shared interest in Nissans here at NICO and hope to make some friends while doing so.
