Television personality and automobile customizer to the stars, Will Castro, will visit Brentwood High School on Wednesday, March 30 at 11 a.m. Castro, who graduated from Brentwood High School and resides in the Smithtown area, will speak to students during an assembly for Automotive Technology about how he started his successful automobile customizing "brand," Unique Autosports, while encouraging students to stay in school and invest time and effort into their education.
Unique Autosports is highly acclaimed, serving a roster of A-List celebrities and athletes who have come to Castro to customize their cars. Among his clientele are Yankee Great CC Sabathia, Grammy Award Winner Sean "P Diddy" Combs, NASCAR Champ Tony Stewart, NBA Superstar Lebron James, Real Estate Mogul Donald Trump and Musical Icon 50 Cent.
According to Castro, "I hope my visit with the students will provide a personal perspective on how important it is to stay in school, work hard, stay off the streets and finish their education. Commitment, dedication and hard work - these are the reasons I was able to build my brand to become successful."
Castro began working while still a student at Brentwood High School. While attending high school, he also worked nights as a parking attendant which provided an opportunity to drive luxury vehicles from automobile companies like Cadillac, Ferrari, Porsche and BMW. His passion for luxury vehicles began to turn into an appreciation for their design, engineering and craftsmanship.
After high school, Castro started his own business which quickly turned into a successful brand enterprise. As he added service lines, the brand continued to grow. Today, as CEO of the Unique Autosports, Castro has become known as a successful businessman, brand marketing guru and custom design artist in demand by celebrities throughout the world. Recently, Castro expanded his brand to Miami opening Unique Autosports: South.
In addition to his entrepreneurial success, Castro has become a television sensation. In 2004, SPEED launched a new programming schedule, and one of its instant hits was Unique Whips, featuring Castro and his Unique Autosports crew. The show was embraced passionately by enthusiasts across the country as Castro's talents as a designer, fabricator and innovator were showcased. Today, Castro serves as host of Unique Autosports: Miami, a television show on Spike TV.
