I hope to earn your vote for a second term as President of the Audi Club of Georgia.
For those that may not know, I’ve been an Audi only driver since 1994. I’ve driven more than 250,000 miles with quattro on my side. My Audis have ranged from an 86 4000csq to a 90 coupe quattro to a plethora of B5, B6 and B8 S4s to my Mk 3 TT. I also work at a local Audi Dealership as a part of the Management Team.
My service to the Audi Club of Georgia has been as a Director on the Board from 2014 – 2016 and as Chapter President in 2017. Planning events including Quattro de Mayo and 2016’s National Event and encouraging club growth is some of the club business I enjoy most. With your vote, I hope to continue down the road to making 2018 a very exciting year!
For Board of Directors:
I have been a member of the Audi Club of GA Board for several years and an Audi enthusiast since spending a summer in Germany studying European patent law. I returned home and purchased a 2000 Audi S4 within months. My S4 continues to receive modifications and is now a dedicated track car that only visits the streets for occasional Audi Club drives. I am also the proud father of four future Audi owners!
I have been a long-time car enthusiast, starting within the VAG family with my first car: a 1969 Volkswagen Beetle in 1986. In 2014, I bought my first Audi, a 2012 Monsoon Grey S5. From that point on, I knew that I would only want to own Audis. As much as I loved driving that car in Quattro De Mayos, etc., I wasn't able to easily fit my family, so I reluctantly sold the S5 and bought a 2012 A7 Prestige with 100K miles on it. ‘Natasha’ has been a great daily driver and with a ‘few special modifications’ holds her own in the twistie-turnies.
My wife, Terri, and I joined the ACNA (and Georgia chapter) late in 2014, although I think I attended my first function in early 2015. I wasn’t going to attend QDM 2015 due to my daughter’s senior prom that Saturday, but decided to bring my son and attend Thursday night, Friday, and long enough for the group picture on Saturday. We have since made it a tradition, roping my two brothers to join in 2017.
In my real life, Terri and I have just celebrated our 29th anniversary, and have two grown children; both currently attending college. I have just recently moved from working for Macy’s Systems and Technology to Northeast Georgia Health System as director of IT field services. My hobbies include working on the Audi, 3D printing, and other various creative endeavors I start, but most likely not finish.
I have been an Audi fan my entire life, bought my first Audi in Germany back in 1999 a A3, currently own a 2012 Q5 and a 2018 RS3 which is my 7th Audi and for sure not my last one. Being a native of Germany I have relocated to the Atlanta area in 2006 and there is simply no better way of meeting great people as the ones that share the same passion.
I joined the Audi Club in 2012 when a friend told me about HPDE events, since then I have joined in many club events and made some great friends. I have actively participated in many club events such as QDM's, the 2016 Audi Nationals Event and many other drives which my wife Claudia Mueller and I have been heavily involved in the planning as well as leading some of them.
Since 2016 I've been the Treasurer of the Audi Club and I am seeking to run for another two-year term to continue my commitment to the club and being part of something that is simply great and a lot of fun. Working in Operations with a focus of finance, strategic planning and organizing will definitely be beneficial to the club in the years ahead. I truly enjoy meeting new people through the clubs social events and to catch up with many of my long-time fellow Audi friends.
I'm looking forward to serve the Audi Club of Georgia for many years to come.
My very first car when I got my license was a well-seasoned and trusty 5 speed Audi 4000 (81). That car served me well in High School and later when I joined the Navy, stationed in San Diego. I officially joined the Audi Club in 2012, when I returned to the Audi brand after years of ‘other’ makes and models. Since then I have been part of the Audi family owning a CPO 2010 S5 and most recently our new 2014 RS5 and 2015 SQ5.
While in California I was part of the San Diego Audi Club where I was part of the local admin team for the San Diego group. Last year my wife and I relocated from San Diego to Marietta, GA and continue to participate in the Georgia chapter events such as Quattro de Mayo, the Audi Club National event and more.
The combination of the social gatherings combined with our passion for Audi make the Audi Club a great place to meet new friends and explore great places in the cars we love. I believe my experience in two different Audi clubs combined with my career experience as a Director of Operations will be a valuable asset to Georgia Chapter and I look forward to the opportunity to serve on the board for another year.
