Operational Speed Supply, LLC is a Veteran Owned Small Business specializing in serving the automotive enthusiast with professional service and support. In 2020, the four owners decided to start a business focused on the automotive aftermarket with one thing in mind, to take the honor and integrity of serving the country in the U.S. Military and serve the automotive community.
The name of Operational Speed Supply pays homage to the Office of Strategic Services or OSS of World War II. William J. Donovan was appointed by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to lead a clandestine intelligence organization during the war. Donovan set himself apart from other leaders by hiring anyone with a desire to defeat the Axis Powers. He was inclusive of anyone with skills and attributes needed for the organization.
We at Operational Speed Supply feel the same way when it comes to your ride. We want to support the automotive enthusiast in whatever they drive. We are here to promote the enthusiast’s desire to improve and modify their ride to pursue the feeling of freedom and exhilaration when they get behind the wheel.
Whether you drive a Diesel Truck, Muscle car, European, Japanese, Jeep, or a commuter car we are here for you. Give us a shout and let us serve you.
I grew up in northern Utah and started modifying vehicles at a young age. My dad helped me disassemble my first small block Chevy when I was five years old. As I was growing up, he had many different “hot rods” we would ride in. From a 1955 Chevy race car to a Yamaha Banshee, the desire to drive fast vehicles never left me. As I grew up the “bug” never left and I continued to modify everything I drove. Fast forward to adulthood, I joined the U.S. Army and passed the Special Forces Qualification Course to earn the Green Beret. During my time with 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) I took mobility operations to heart and ensured that our vehicles were always ready for operations. This included modifications for carrying equipment, improving efficiency, and performance. From that background, the vision for Operational Speed Supply was born. A vision to provide the best service, advice, and camraderie of the automotive hobby to the enthusiast just like I experienced during my career in the Army.
California raised and introduced to the automotive industry in 2018. I grew up a Navy brat to my father, who retired after 30 years as a Naval Aviator. Since then, I have spent most of my adulthood studying psychology, clinical mental health, working in neuropsychology and serving the veteran community with knowledge acquired through academic studies as well as working as a certified Yoga instructor. I have a passion for helping others and use that as my focus at Operational Speed Supply. My goal is to provide service to those who serve. I want to assist anyone who looking to build their cars, whether it be for project build or simple maintenance. I keep the flow going at OSS and want to help keep your ride rolling down the road.
I was born in Northern Utah my family has always been into cool cars and making them cooler. I grew up watching my Dad work on his hot rods and helping as long as the wrenches weren’t airborne. I started working in an auto shop as a lube tech when I was 15 years old. After high school, I started working on cars at my dad’s shop and earned my ASE certifications, working on all makes and models that came through our doors. After a few years the shop went from mainly auto repairs to restoration of classic cars. We would get cars from all over the western United States and completely go through them. From all the restorations my love grew for classic cars and modifications. After a few years of working there I moved on to work as a tech at a GM dealership. Although my love for working on cars was strong I decided to follow a life-long dream of mine which was joining the military. I come from a big military family. My Great Grandfather, Grandpa, Dad, and older Brother went before me and I followed their lead. I joined the U.S. Army as an Infantryman. I went to Jump School, followed by Ranger Assessment and Selection Program where I earned my tan beret and my scroll while assigned to 2/75 Ranger Regiment. My career in the military has been fulfilling. From the brotherhood that I have with my coworkers and earning my Ranger Tab. Although I love my job I still have a strong passion for the automotive industry. I believe that service members and their families should have an honest, fair, resourceful, and efficient source for their automotive needs. Whether they are wanting to push the horsepower on their ride or just keep the car on the road, I would like to help facilitate their needs. To the Breezes. RLTW
Growing up in the blue-collar, coal country of Northeastern Pennsylvania, I learned a strong work ethic at a very young age. I am a product of a prosperous small business mentality with an understanding of what it takes to be successful in an ever-evolving, fast paced marketplace. I have managed university apartments, flower shops and restaurants all while juggling college education. While completing a graduate program at the University of Scranton, I opened a bar and grill that saw steady, consistent growth due to ownership and marketing strategies I created and implemented on a multitude of platforms. My time as an owner taught me many of the same morals the United States military looks for in their most successful leaders; accountability, integrity, and humility. I look forward to using these skills in this next endeavor as we bridge the gap between car owners and their performance needs in the most cost effective, efficient way possible.
