About Me

I grew up as a child in the state of Maine. From a young age my father instilled the entrepreneurial spirit in me. I was always on my paper route, mowing lawns, even collecting lost golf balls to sell back to the golf course for 25 cents each as a young boy. My family moved to Portland Oregon in 1976, where I continued with my paper route and odd jobs. When I was 15 years old I had the opportunity to buy some used arcade games from a closing business. Remember Pac Man and Asteroids? I started with 5 arcade machines. I found locations for them at the local college and bars. I would collect the quarters each week and was able to build that business up to 150 machines before selling the entire route at age 17. I was motivated and ready to take on my next venture.

I then started a mail order company focusing on software and components for the Commodore 64. The entire basement of my parent’s house was filled with phone lines, computer terminals and more. My employees and I were taking orders and shipping like crazy. I sold that company and went to work for several large corporations and realized that the corporate life was not for me. In 1987, I co-founded Outrageous Audio. What started out as a speaker box company (making speaker boxes by hand in our garage) quickly grew into one of Portland’s most iconic car stereo stores. After 34+ years we are consistently the top Car Audio store in the world as rated by Kicker, Kenwood, Audio Control, Focal, and Compustar.

My experience has given me a unique understanding of the dynamics involved with building a highly profitable, low stress car stereo store. Most importantly, I have discovered what keeps employees, and how to get customers coming back to my store month after month, year after year. I am ready to share all of my knowledge and secrets with you that will elevate your store to its greatest potential.
