It started my freshman year in high school with auto body class  I’ve always enjoyed working on and fixing up my own vehicles. Graduated UTI in ’04 and was a VW tech in Maryland for 2 years. Moved back to AZ with intensions to be a tech but no one would hire me. Got a job with a race shop doing auto body(intense motorsports)they fired my boss so i took over and got an apprentice(Joe) to help me. The company ended up going under. After multiple shops my apprentice now my best friend started a business account. Him being a single guy and I single dad of 4 with full custody of all now he has become my boss. We’ve.become one of the higher end build shops here in Phoenix. And I got tired of building cars for customers..always had an itch to build something cool but never could afford it.. I was a VW guy until I bought a 91 miata (’17) Fixed it up and got it running. Dailyed it for over a year.. met up with old friend, got a ride in his turbo Ls swapped foxbody mustang and after that it was over.. found another miata stripped it down and LS swapped it.. built it to street cruise with my buddy(mustang). Street cruised it for a year. Got on marketplace to find a new armrest. Went to pick it up and met a drfter.. he invited me to the track the week after that.. got ride along with him and was HOOKED.. spent next year slowly turning it into a drift car and now I eat,sleep and breath Drifting.. consumed my life. lol I hit every monthly local event for a year and half.. in 2023 I saved to drive the big national events(fuelfest,IFO,jimmy up..) I traveled to California twice. Did my first tandems 12/9/23 at fuelfest.. can’t wait to get back out there. IfO is coming up in March and hoping this is how it all happens.. thank you for this opportunity
