The Owner. Simply put, I LOVE BMW’s! This exciting journey began as a 16 year old when I performed my very first engine swap on my very first car in my parent’s garage in Manasquan, NJ. My enjoyment quickly developed into a true commitment to learn more. Those efforts resulted in my achieving Technical Team Leader status at a prominent New Jersey BMW dealership at just 22 years old.
After several years working for that dealership, I knew my destiny was more. After considerable research and consultation, I decided to take on the challenge of building my own independent BMW business; one that would offer customers something new and something they wanted - a highly personalized and affordable BMW service. One that would combat an ever increasing service cost combined with the disappointing unenthusiastic approach found at most BMW dealer service departments.
Fast forward to the present, I’ve worked on 1000’s of BMW’s earning local and national recognition for performance excellence as a self-proclaimed independent BMW specialist. I’ve effectively transformed my deep passion for BMW mechanics into my own company and brand, Tyspeed .
During more than a decade of individualized customer service as a BMW Center of Excellence, Tyspeed has also entered the world of professional motorsports. We’ve successfully competed in a variety of exclusive events including: Pike’s Peak in 2019, a full national tour of the United States in the well-known Global Time Attack series, New Jersey BMW Club Racing events, several 12 and 24 Hour Endurance races, and an appearance at SEMA. Tyspeed and our fine team of industry specialists have undeniably established ourselves amongst the highest rankings of independent BMW Motorsport shops in the country.
Forever a “student of the game”, I continue to learn by disciplining myself and encouraging our team to the highest levels of performance. As we complete our 6th year of business with hundreds of satisfied and loyal clients, we’re proud to offer our clients the highest level of customer service and dedication that you will not find anywhere else.
Always available and approachable to help with client needs, I encourage you to give us a try. You’ll experience firsthand what BMW Service should be – and be glad you did!
Lead Technician. Deciding on a professional career one REALLY wants, can certainly be challenging. Like many , I wanted to do something, I liked (a lot!); a job that had meaningful challenges and responsibilities. Work that could make a positive impact on others’ lives. I wanted a solid foundation for my future. In earlier years, a close friend bought a BMW. It was an awesome car...
– and I wanted one.
I quickly began to educate myself in every way possible about these Ultimate driving machines and, knowing I was already technically minded, I began my search for my own first BMW. I Did so much work on that first car, and it resulted in other friends and family asking me to help them with their cars also. While I was having fun and making some money (and enjoying my car!);I then decided to get some formal training- which I did through my first job at the Bimmer Clinic. Having known about Tyspeed for years ,but not yet feeling up to the standard, I continued for the better part of 2 years , before reaching out and making the decision to join Tyspeed. I felt the independent repair shop culture, the other technicians, and the shop itself was where I belonged; all professional technicians with a passion for BMW’s, enjoying the challenges and rewards of working on them to achieve optimal performance. Today, I continue to enjoy working within our team environment and growing professionally; I’m working now primarily on larger projects with more in-depth repairs resulting in maximizing reliability and performance for our customers. I appreciate the trust our customers have in me, our team and Tyspeed and I look forward to the many future projects to come through the doors here.
My interest in mechanics was fueled by an enthusiastic grandfather who raced boats, loved planes, motorcycles, and had lots of very cool cars. I learned a lot working by his side and used those skills frequently on my first car. I worked hard, saved enough money to buy my “dream car” in 2017 - an E30. I knew then I was going to pursue a career as a technician and that BMW’s were in my blood.
Shop Dog. My dad brought me to this crazy place in the beginning of 2020. What a crazy year. Lots of weird noises and loud sounds happen here but I am pretty used to them now. I like to get nice pets during the day from my brothers and the nice people who come in to see me. Dad says I can be a little jumpy but he knows I mean well and I just want people to see me because I am a little short.
I like hiding bones and important things the guys need sometimes around the shop and finding them later. I really like snacks and treats, and antlers. I have a step brother and sister that live in Florida too, where I spend my vacations. I like going to racetracks and zooming around with my dad in his car. If you come here make sure you give me a good pet or I’ll be sad.
