I started Podium to fulfill the desire of wanting to provide the highest quality solutions consistently, to simple and complex situations for the automotive consumer and collector. I've worked in the sports car industry since 2016 and have been able to gain valuable experience, resources, and solutions for meeting goals the most efficient way, which in turn reflects saving time and money for clients. (We all know what its like doing a project twice.) I pride myself in delivering the highest quality results, gaining client satisfaction and trust. I am not one to takes shortcuts and prefer to do things correct the first go and wont deliver until it meets the "Podium Standard". Podium is an extension of myself which stands to deliver the best quality service for what is offered. Podium only offers services that we are confident in being able to deliver the best results.

I grew up around motorsports which created opportunities for me in adult life to pursue as a career path with passion. I have dipped my feet in automotive photography, vinyl wrap, PPF, collection management, sales, restoration, amongst other things. This allowed me to have broad vision and knowledge for the industry as a whole and find that this it is a fading art amongst my generation. This helped me recognize that I was in the field of my calling and was able to identify where to focus and bring you the best solutions at great value. 


In 2016 I started doing Vinyl Wrap, PPF and automotive media as it was becoming high demand and in 2018 I took a job in the automotive restoration and collection management industry where I merged my Vinyl & PPF services and continued to expand my experience and capabilities. For the following 5 years I would work with high end collector cars, exotic cars, race cars, in different aspects and settings. I took it as an opportunity to learn, grow, and push my capabilities and comprehensions. I have become well known for PPF installs that were practically invisible and long lasting without failure, specializing in classic and luxury cars. I gained an abundance of experience in assembly and disassembly from working on the restoration side of business, which benefitted my PPF capabilities by allowing the film to tuck into places not allowed without disassembly. 


Fast forward to 2023, I started building the brand and soft opened Podium Auto Group in November with the intentions of focusing on a smaller range of services, with more attention to detail, and to give clients what I am most valued for.
