I was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ. I have been in the auto collision industry for thirty three years. I've always loved cars and found my chance to learn to paint from my Uncle when I was in high school. I've always been a high production auto painter, but have done custom work on the weekends at home. I have always loved all styles of custom cars, but more prone to low-rider and 4x4's. One day a gentleman came into the shop I was spraying at the time and asked if would spray his 49 Merc and after 9 coats of PPG Ford Vermilion red, Dick "Magoo" Megugorac loved the way his car turned out, and this is part of the reason I am spraying for Dean today.
