I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and currently live in Hubbard, OH with my wife, Marianne. I’m a proud father of four children. My oldest daughter is a Paramedic in Pittsburgh and my oldest son is a US Marine now living outside of Pittsburgh. I have been with Sweeney Chevrolet for over 5 years. I’m a Truck Marketing Institute Graduate, the designated truck specialist as well as the Certified Corvette Specialist for the dealership. Before coming to Sweeney, I had 25 years of experience in the construction industry. I’ve been a life-long car enthusiast. When I was younger, I would drag race and even attended the Professional Driving School at Kentucky Motor Speedway. Recently, I also attended a performance driving school for the C7 Corvette Stingray in Pahrump, Nevada. In my free time I enjoy watching and attending NASCAR races, golfing, and cheering on the Steelers, Penguins and Pirates.
