Meet the DriveTime Crew!
We’re a team of innovators and engineers, movers and shakers, morning people and night owls, dreamers and believers, techies and talkers. But most of all we are a family. At DriveTime we’re fueled by the success of our employees as much as we are by the loyalty of our customers.
I really enjoy working in the securitization side of our business and interacting with Investment Banks. I also like having the ability to take on new projects and improve processes when they need to be updated. There is a lot of freedom to discover and implement changes that benefit both the department and the company as a whole.
I really enjoy music, so I like to go to as many concerts as I can fit within a year. I have played the drums for over 15 years, which is where this comes from. I also love to travel, and have been all over the world. Hiking is also something I try and do on the weekends. Finally, I love to cook, especially BBQ. I got a smoker roughly a year ago and it has become a hobby of mine.
