    I started with Ray Catena early 2020 on the heels of the birth of my first born children, which happened to be twins. Going on my third year here, I am privileged to work at a company where I have been able to learn and grow in the business, working my way  up from a product specialist to a successful salesperson, and being able to provide for my family. Being hit with challenges in lieu of the pandemic, I have been able to remain grounded and drives sales with the support of my managers and peers.

    I started in this business in 2003, and have been with Mercedes since 2009 in sales. Before my career in the auto industry I studied, and worked in the culinary industry. I still love to cook, but only for friends and family. I’ve always been mesmerized by the Mercedes-Benz brand and their AMG® performance line, and that’s what drove me to car sales. I live locally in Marlboro with my wife and daughter, and always enjoy getting to know all my customers at the dealership, as well as in the community.

    I have been in the automotive industry for 13 years, with three different brands; saving the best for last. I joined the Ray Catena family in 2018 and I take great pride in being part of the most honest, hardworking and customer service oriented group in the world. I absolutely love what I do, and could not imagine working with a more tight-knot group of people. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my beautiful family, going to the beach, and collecting fine spirits. I am also a huge Devils, Yankees and Giants fan!
