What Shag did before Iron Resurrection

If you have tuned in to watch any episode of Iron Resurrection that has aired in the last eight years, you will likely already know that Shag’s marketing and sales skills are not just simply for show.

In fact, before Shag became the big Iron Resurrection reality television show that we all know and love today, he was actually employed in the Marketing sector full time.

According to Shag’s LinkedIn page, he has worked as a marketer for companies like Red Bull, Astro Red Industries, Neurobrands and NCompass International before signing on to do Iron Resurrection, and he apparently has quite the knack for developing unforgettable guerilla marketing and grassroots campaigns. No wonder he is so good at negotiating.

Just because Shag may not always be directly involved in the actual fabrication of the impressive cars that we see come out of the Martin Bros. Customs shop on Iron Resurrection – it does not mean that he does not get under the hood in his free time.

It turns out that Shag is a life-long gearhead. The Iron Resurrection co-host recently took to Instagram to share an old throwback Polaroid photo to celebrate all of the hard work that he and his father would do on their cars “on any given Saturday growing up”.
