Detailing Technician

Steven is a detailing apprentice whose passion for cleaning cars is driven by his enthusiasm for cars. As a young car enthusiast, he was always looking for a spot in the car scene growing up in a small town like Charlottesville. Cleaning and caring for cars first started when he purchased his first car at the age of 16. He is quickly learning our approach and techniques and Automotive Aesthetic has given him a sharp eye for detailing. We are greatly benefitting from his hard work and dedication.

Detailing Technician

Bryan is a detailing apprentice who started his automotive journey at the age of six. Spending every free moment he had at car shows, auto-cross events and track days; Bryan became enamored with race-cars. Consequently, Bryan pursued a career as a mechanical technician, before entering into the detailing field, which was perfect for us—comfortable around cars, but trainable to be a detailing tech. As a result of his mechanical knowledge and hard work ethic, Bryan is a valuable asset to Automotive Aesthetic’s unique approach to the detailing process.
