In 1997 he was recruited to be the Director of Consumer Reports Auto Test Facility in East Haddam CT, where he was in charge of their extensive auto, tire and child seat testing at the 327-acre site in East Haddam, CT. The Auto Test campus is a state-of-the-art facility with specially paved surfaces, straight- and winding-road courses, an off-road course, the latest computerized test equipment, and an expert staff. The department anonymously buys and tests more than 80 cars and trucks a year, and is the largest independent consumer automobile testing center in the world.He moved back to the valley in 2012 and rejoined Nissan at their proving grounds just south of Maricopa, where he was an executive senior advisor for design and quality. He was involved in the design and development of future products and systems, including advanced zero emission vehicles and autonomous driving cars.Since retiring in 2018 he started a consulting company helping auto manufacturers with his wealth of expertise.
He is also renovating a 1985 British Rover Vitesse, which is quite a task as they were never imported into the US. His first car was a 1959 Mini.
