Having had a passion for motor vehicles and trimming design from a very early age, I pursued my dream to become a Motor Trimmer in 1987 when I began my apprenticeship through Batman Automotive College, whilst employed at Master Trimming Services Melbourne.
I received many accolades from the colleague during my time there, including Best Apprentice Trimmer & Best Overall Apprentice.
My adaptability and enthusiasm held me in good stead as I learnt how to work on many specialised vehicles and was therefore without hesitation allocated the specialised cars in my 9 ½ years as an employee. My career experiences up to that time reaffirmed my aspirations and drive to pursue motor trimming as a full time career, a drive which still remains to this day.
Moving on from Master Trimming Services, I was employed by Blackman & Sons, Melbourne for 8 years, which enabled me to bring my leather work abilities up to a prestige standard. Exposure to many varieties of Vintage, Classic and Sports cars also further strengthened my abilities in pattern design, assembling and fitting.
I finally started my own Business as Mickz Motor Trimming in June 2004, something I always wanted to do. I now get to put my full name to all of these amazing machines. Since '04 I have trimmed all of the cars bikes etc in the showroom & gallery and more.... Many of which have won top awards at various shows, including 3 Top of Class at the 1st ever Melbourne International Concours D'elegance (I am very proud of this achievement)
These results are what drive me to keep my quality of work at a very high standard. And, because of these top results and customer satisfaction, I still get excited about my work after 26 years.
As of April 2013, we relocated to Pakenham Victoria
