Our Team

Luke Walch is the owner and founder of Green Eyed Motors. Luke is a Jiu Jitsu enthusiast who used to do marketing and product training for Toyota and Tesla. He learned a lot from stumbling into the automotive industry and brought a lot of what makes Tesla great--quality, class, environmental awareness, and great customer service--to Green Eyed Motors. During the few hours when he isn’t working, Luke likes spending time with his wife and two sons, mountain biking with his buddies, and failing to proofread things his employees post on the website.
 
   
 
 
 
Jason Holtzhouser has been a car enthusiast his entire life, despite struggling to fit in them for the latter half of it. He has a degree in Media Studies with a minor in Comparative Literature, which is very helpful for managing marketing and inventory listings and somewhat demoralizing when he's relegated to changing lightbulbs and pulling things off high shelves. Jason enjoys jazz and stand-up comedy, as our office Pandora account can attest. He told us for the purposes of this bio that he once won $400 in bar tabs in a costume contest (he was Ace Ventura), so next time we go out drinks are on him (sucker).
 


 

Marcus Manchego is an excellent salesperson by day.  But at night (and on the weekends), he transforms into a walking, talking, guitar-playing time warp back to the 80’s and the hair metal of the era. When he’s not shredding, he’s busy raising two future musicians with his wife in Longmont.  And with over a decade in the car business, Marcus has proved that he is dedicated to serving his customer’s needs, especially if their needs include a quality face-melting!

   


Alyssa Schmit is our latest addition to the team as our Office Manager/Title Clerk/Bookkeeper. With New Mexican in her roots, she smothers all of her food in green chile and the cholla cactus is her favorite plant.  If anyone could turn that into a tattoo, she is now taking artwork submissions.  She exercises her cowboy alter-go as "Deputease" while playing roller derby for Boulder County's league.  When not working hard at Green Eyed Motors, she can be found hiking, walking her young-at-heart dog, taking photos of flowers, or on the side of a country road having a "roadside dance party."


 

   


 

 

Dave Noel is veteran of the car industry, as well as a loving father to two, including a son serving in the United States Army, who lives with his wife in Longmont.  Dave is also a legitimate gearhead.  In addition to decades in the car business, Dave has spent his entire life exploring the mountains with dirtbikes and snowmobiles, resulting in an encyclopedic knowledge of the off-road trails of Colorado.  But make no mistake, he also knows a thing or two about cars.  If Dave isn’t at work, or making a small engine scream up the side of a mountain, you can probably find him at home on his plot of land, riding around on his tractor.  

   


 
Marcelo Jaramillo, our newest salesperson, is scared.  A Miami, Florida native who has spent his entire life in the warmth of our country’s more tropical climates like Hawaii and California, Marcelo is worrying about losing his sandal tan lines and shivering at the thought of snow.  Considering that his background is with Tesla Motors and in solar power though, Marcelo should feel right at home here in Colorado, helping to put electric vehicles in Front-Range driveways!  
 
 



Ambez Miran is the Finance Director here at Green Eyed Motors.  He is of Kurdish-American descent, who grew up along the East Coast until his teens, when his family relocated to Iraq.  Happily married, Ambez is now passing those life experiences on to his two children, who he also likes dressing up and taking to comicon. Ambez excels at looking exceptionally cool, even if he has to stay up late at night to play video games.  




   

Brandon Dill's main job description is to make everyone else’s job easier.  He is a tireless worker, who makes excellent pizza and cheeseburgers for us if we are lucky.  Originally from Oklahoma, Brandon has lived and worked in the Boulder area for many years now.  Brandon listens to Outlaw Country and has trained in martial arts, which means he’s cooler than the rest of us.
