President - Brian Woodiwiss
Brian Woodiwiss was born and raised in beautiful Napa Valley, CA where he resided across the street from two Vipers (and their owner) for most of his teenage years. His dream of owning one would come to fruition in 2017 when he flew to Phoenix, AZ to purchase his very first Viper. He joined the NorCal VOA and less than two years later he had sold his beloved Gen3 Mamba and acquired his current Viper: a very ACR_ISH (hint hint) 2014 SRT Viper. It became his mission to run for chapter president so he could inject some fresh young blood into the Viper community. Brian looks forward to representing his native area and leading with passion, ambition and integral dependability! God. Family. Vipers!
