How Obsessed Garage Began
While my “normal” childhood friends would sit and smash their Matchbox cars together…I was in the other corner sorting, categorizing, and organizing them. Yeah, it started early.
Then a few years ago that I was diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder. I’ll spare you the details, but how that tends to manifest itself in my life is by me taking on way too much, and certainly the weight of that can be crippling at times. But shortly after this discovery I was speaking with my therapist who told me something that would change my life forever. She told me to “get out of my own head”. Simple concept, but extremely challenging for someone like me. I had to realize that it was time to let others in. That the more I disappeared into the garage by myself, the more intense my disorder would become. Enter ObsessedGarage.com! That was my solution, and I’ve never looked back.
What started with a blog, turned into a YouTube channel, which turned into the international brand that Obsessed Garage has grown into today. Deciding to let people like you into my story, and to share what is going on in my crazy world has changed my life forever. I hope this place can do the same for you!
When I started modifying my cars more seriously, I scoured the internet for a source of focused, specific information that provided a weirdly intense amount of detail for the subject I wanted to know more about. I couldn’t find what I was looking for…so I just created it.

What Is Obsessed Garage?
When I started sharing the ownership experience of my cars, I made a decision to create very specific and detailed content. ObsessedGarage.com became the place where I organized and gathered all of it.
What products I’m using and why, the cars I own, the modifications to my cars, the building and ever improving of my garage… all of it will be documented with a level of detail that you’ve never seen anywhere else in the world.
Whether it’s a video from my YouTube channel, an episode of the Dialed In Podcast, a post from my blog, or a thread in the Obsessed Garage Forums, we produce nothing but the most focused, intense, and comprehensively detailed content you’ll find on the internet.

Why Obsessed Garage?
Honestly, I’m not sure that my story is anything special or worthy of being told. But, I think it’s necessary to let people in if I want this idea to work. So you’re going to get more than you bargained for.
I think if anyone is going to follow me on the journey, they need to know who is in front of the camera. Otherwise, I’m just another jerk flaunting his bright blue sports car and talks about how much money he has. I don’t want to be that guy. I hope you take this at face value and get a real sense for who I am as a person.
This is me, all or nothing.
