I started with Dad back in 1976 in the back yard. I was 10 years old when I first fell in love with cars.

Dad has been customizing and involved in the industry since 1949. he is an icon in the motor sports fashion world and worked with many great legends going back to his days at watson's body shop.

he HAS worked with barris, grumpy, bill papke,

dutch ( von Dutch ), larry " boney" johnson, papa george,

and icons of the film and auto industry.  

he started the very first automobile brokerage company, AUTOMOTIVE collections MANAGEMENT house back in 1963

​I AM VERY GLAD TO STILL HAVE HIM ON STAFF, OR HE HAS ME.


SECOND GENERATION CRAFTSMAN


I  am Hungry for Art, Love, Family, and fun projects that sustain my obsession with ART and DESIGN.

I don't take myself too seriously. Confident, Bold, & Independent I strive to be effortlessly iconic, sometimes mischievous, always empowered, timelessly stylish, & forever eclectic. 

I am old enough to have a global perspective on things, but still young enough to get away with almost anything with my projects.


 My personal direction with Automobile Restorations Art is intuitive, I build Automobiles that put classy next to playful, sexy next to fun, & serious with irreverence. 

My company Deville Customs, is defined by a passionate dynamic energy, attention to detail, and an irreverent sense of humor.

Designed and built in Costa Mesa California since 1986, I still have the same local craftsman, welders, fabricators, and trim shop. Priced to fit any budget, I offer beautifully constructed & DRIVABLE pieces of art, only using top quality fabrications & materials with elements that will surprise & delight.
