At MYCHANIC, we have a rallying cry—Turn Your Own Wrench. Our customers are fiercely proud of their ability to solve problems, build amazing things, and simply get it done. We understand. We think the same way.
We thrive on solving problems. On fixing something that wasn't quite right. We understand how you think, because we’re DIY guys too. If it has wheels, we like it, and want to customize it. We know you do too. We design what we wish was available for our own projects.
Our endgame? Creating sleek, powerful and quality products that are durable enough to keep up with the most experienced gearhead.
Welcome to the crew.
From the Garage to the Office
We run on high octane fuel, coffee and tacos.
Business Planning Manager
What can make a guy leave 10+ years of tenure? The chance to unite your hobby and job. James’ love of cars spans generations: his dad shows cars in just about every event we go to and his toddler’s nursery is car themed (not the cartoon). His experience in operations, product development, project management and keen intuition for knowing what people want is exactly what we needed.
What He Does: We all like to innovate, but James helps balance the awesome with logic and the resources to get it done right. He always has an ear to the ground, making sure we’re considering new market needs and staying ahead of the curve.
Current Project: Minor restoration and performance modifications on his 1993 Mustang LX 5.0.
Head of Industrial Design and Development
Gene is the guy who while standing in line at the movies or sitting on an airplane, begins to fidget with surrounding materials and suddenly... a product idea is born. No really. Look up next time you sit in a plane... you may find the origin of the POD Light. With over a hundred product concepts and 17 patents under his belt, we don't really care where the inspiration comes from.
What He Does: The proper name is “industrial designer” but we prefer to call him the inventor. While all the guys contribute ideas and new product concepts, Gene is the guy who brings the functional and innovative together for the wow.
Current Project: A tuner at heart, Gene just traded his Subaru for a Mustang GT 5.0 with a 15-phase aftermarket plan.
Consider for a moment the lowly shop stool. Usually, it’s a beat-to-hell office chair with the back broken off, soaked in grease. Or maybe you’re sitting on a wheel dolly with a boat seat cushion on it.
