I’ve always been in or around the automobile industry. I can remember literally being under my fathers desk as a boy while he worked F&I deals at a dealership in Gladstone, Mo. He decided to get out of the sales end and pioneered a company called Dr.Vinyl. From there PDR hit the streets in 1988 and my father trained for the craft in 1990. I joined him in 1995 after graduating high school. We built a local company that specialized in Paintless Dent Removal, paint touch-ups, vinyl graphics, pin stripes, spot repairs, and details for all the local dealers and body shops. In that process I received my Spies Hecker, and ICI certifications for auto body paint. I spent seven years under my father before deciding to go out on my own. From 2002 till 2007 I chased hail. In 2007 I decided this was no longer an option as it was taking a toll on my family. I hung up my hail hat and moved the family to Tallahassee, Florida to start a route company. It was a major transition for me as there was a huge sacrifice in lifestyle that needed to happen. Through a persistence that I can only give credit to God for, we have become the leading name in Paintless Dent Removal in the Pan Handle of Florida.
We are known for being able to accomplish what was once though as impossible. Through reaching out to others in our industry, larger, more complex damage that was once thought not possible most certainly is. I’m proud to say we have some of the most talented individuals working with us that have allowed us to expand into other familiar areas. Currently we now offer not only PDR, but also custom polishing, layered touch-ups, and head light restoration as well.
I started my Paintless Dent Repair career in 1993 and have been perfecting my work since then. I have worked for dealerships, auto body/collision centers, rental car companies and also retail customers. I grew up in the automobile industry. I got my passion for cars from my father who has been a salesman since 1969.
From 2001 to 2010, I was the sole in-house technician for a BMW, Volkswagen, Mini/Cooper dealership in Jacksonville, Florida. I handled all of the new and used car inventory along with service lanes and the collision center. In 2011, I opened my own mobile PDR business, Dent-O-Matic. I focus mostly on hail repairs on a national level as well as continue to do local retail work between hail storms.
