Chad comes by it honest when he says he spent most of life figuring out what would be his ideal career. Having a natural gift in art, he knew he needed to do something that would showcase his talent. Having tried several different careers, he was approached by a friend at the age of 33 with an opportunity to work on a firetruck. This introduced Chad into working with an airbrush and learning how to pinstripe, eventually leading him into the love of cars, especially hot rods. Chad joined Kustom Joe’s in the fall of 2015 and with his diligent work ethic he’s been given lots of opportunities to now not only work on collision repair but also, of course, put those art skills to use on kustom paint and design.
