Having an entrepreneurial spirit, Jim – a San Diego native since 1982 – took on the challenges of business ownership in 1985 while attending SDSU and earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing.  His love for cars started as a kid with his Matchbox cars and Tonka trucks, which were the envy of the neighborhood because they were kept in mint condition all through his childhood.

One of the things he loves about his business is the ability to develop a long-term personal relationship with each of his clients. Jim’s approach to detailing is to treat each client’s car as if it were his very own. He has many clients that have been with him for over 20 years because of the excellent service he provides.

Jim has been a mentor to and taught many other new detailers the trade. He is called in regularly by other detailers to consult and/or work with them on challenging detailing situations such as removing scratches, swirl marks and other paint imperfections.

Over the years, Jim has been hired to detail motorcycles and cars for specific conventions in San Diego and Los Angeles counties, such as the Harley Davidson motorcycle conventions, the BMW regional conventions, and the Ferrari club mets.

When Jim is not detailing, he spends his free time pursuing his passion for sailing.
