My name is Dustin Russell and I am the owner and operator of Squeaky Tiki Mobile Detail.
I have spent most of my life in public service. After High School I spent some time lost and trying to find my place in life. However, this stage did not last long and I found myself back on school, which eventually landed me in the driver seat of a Fire Engine. I spent almost a decade as a Firefighter and EMT. I have worked in the fire department and in the emergency rooms in Manatee County for over 10 years. At this time you would think life was great but I still wanted more. Then I met the love of my life, a nurse who worked with me in the hospital. It was during this time I had a life changing event and with the blessing of my new wife I decided to make a drastic career change. I decided to go back to college, I wanted to learn more. Yet, I have always had a passion for cars and I began remembering the first car I restored, a 1965 Nash Rambler back in the late 90s. I was just a kid at the time and my dad helped me along the way, providing the knowledge and support to make it happen. Soon after my 18th birthday, I became a fully ASE certified mechanic but that kind of work eventually wore on me and made working on cars no longer enjoyable. Realizing that love for cars was still deep rooted in my heart, I decided to go back into the portion of the industry I love. The shining and polishing to make something old and dirty look new. I have a extensive background in the automotive and public service industries, and a no nonsence attitude putting my work 2nd only to my family. On my days off you can find in Zepherhills, FL at Skydive City where I enjoy Skydiving. As a licenced Skydiver I found my one true get away from the problems of the world. At 14,000 feet you look down and your worries dissipear for the 60 seconds of free fall before deploying a Paraschute slowing me down for a 10 minuet ride to earth where my only worries are the birds flying around me and the noise of the earth is nothing more than a distant sound.
Now, I look forward to providing a service I enjoy doing. I look forward to doing business with you. My goal is to satisfy all my customer’s needs. I want to make you my next repeat customer.
