From as far back as I can remember some part of my life has revolved around classic cars. My grandfather owned an upholstery shop where my father worked. I spent a lot of time there as a kid seeing old Packards, LaSalles, and street rods. My father took over the shop when I was in junior high and I started seeing a lot more muscle cars and even some late models. When I got old enough to be trusted I was given the task of tearing down interiors, rebuilding seats, recovering headliners and occasionally some light sewing of seat covers during my summers off of school. I have also worked in the service department of a Ford dealership and obtained my B.S. in Automotive Technology from the University of Central Missouri. For 10 years I managed a classic car dealership with multiple locations and oversaw around 250 car sales per month. I have been performing appraisals for over 10 years part-time and recently decided to make it my full-time career. I have personally owned over 40 classic cars (including 24 Mustangs) of my own and restored 15+ to one degree or another. I was selected as one of SEMAs "35 Under 35" in 2015, which was an honor.
