I started my journey into PDR at age 20 as an apprentice in house tech at a local Collison center in Reno, Nevada. I think starting my PDR career in a body shop setting really paved the road for quick expertise dealing with a large variety of damage types on the technical side of repairs, but it also helped me develop the necessary sales & business skills to become a top level tech. January 2014 was my first month into the real world as an independent repair tech, and I quickly built a strong route of body shop & dealership clients which I continued to service until my first real encounter with a small hail storm in South Lake Tahoe August 2015. This was a turning point for me. In 2016 I decided to move to the Chicago area to pursue the goal of working hail storms exclusively. Circa 2020, I have since relocated back home to Northern Nevada. PDR has been great to for my life and has allowed me to earn a great income while traveling & having new experiences.
