OUR STORY

When I bought my first car at 18 I was just like any other guy — I loved washing and detailing it because I wanted my car to look good, and I wanted to feel good driving it.

 

It started as a hobby, but I slowly started to fall in love with car detailing. I was watching YouTube videos every day about washing and waxing, and I joined a car detailing Facebook group to gather information and learn as much as I could. I practiced my craft on my friends and family’s cars, and in 2017 I joined a polishing and buffing class at a local San Diego detail supply store, Detail Garage. 

 

I realized the driving experience is totally different with a freshly detailed car and I wanted to share this feeling with other car owners. In 2018 I started my first auto detailing company, “Nate’s Auto Detailing”. 

In 2019 I wanted to perfect my craft even more, so I started taking classes at Detailing Success. I was trained by Renny Doyle, a master-level detailer who is in both the automotive and private jet/corporate jet industries. He also details Air Force One.

At Detailing Success I worked my way up and became a Double Black Renny Doyle Collection Certified Technician and Inspiration Ceramic Coating Certified Application Technician. These lead me to an opportunity I could not pass up — a job at one of the best high-end automotive detailing businesses in San Diego, Elite Finish. It was here that I perfected my skills working on luxury car brands like Rolls-Royce, Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Aston Martin, and Porsche, among others. 

 

After yet another detailing class, I became an IGL Ceramic Coating installer. It was soon after that I realized that detailing cars isn’t just a hobby or a job — it’s my passion.

 

And in 2020, Passion Driven Automotive was born.
