Chad Nichols
Delivery Manager
Chad's knowledge of automobiles and his ability to drive a truck and trailer first got him a job on our delivery staff in 2011.  He worked on and off making deliveries, hosting events, and even doing some entertaiment until late August 2015 when he came on as Delivery Manager.  Now he not only makes deliveries, but writes the schedule, oversees the delivery staff and leads trailer training for new drivers. Though he can still do airbrush tattoos and make balloons, his favorite thing at SDKPR is operating the Eurobungy.

Justin Tyre

Justin started with SDKPR in early 2015 after graduating San Diego State University.  An east county native, Justin worked at the YMCA in various departments before coming to us.  In our office, he processes orders, handles customer service correspondence and preps food supplies for events.  Justin enjoys planning fun youth events and talking with our clients- his love for sports is sure to help you plan a great sports themed party!
Nick Patrick
Inventory Manager/ Senior Delivery Staff
An Iowa native, Nick's passion for skateboarding brought him west to San Diego.  It is through skating that Nick met Stu and first started working at SDKPR in 2012.  Nick started on our delivery staff, and now manages our rentals and inventory.  He maintains our inventory by checking that all games have the appropriate balls, putters and bean bags, and also cleans all our rental equipment to make sure it is "shinin" for your party.  Book our Skate Simulator for your next event and maybe he can come show you some of his moves!
Steve Baldwin 
Warehouse and Maintenance Manager
Steve has been with SDKPR since 2009.  He spent his first two years on the delivery staff, then started using his knowledge and expertise to fix equipment that needed repairs.  Two years ago Steve became our Warehouse and Maintenance Manager and has since learned the ins and outs of all of our equipment.  He fixes, repairs, bolts, and patches any equipment that has partied too hard.  "Stevie Baby" is our jack-of-all-trades who ensures all the rental equipment is ready to go and loaded in the right truck to get to your party. When he does get out of the warehouse, his favorite piece of equipment to operate is the Mechanical Bull.  


Tim Kerr
Senior Delivery Staff
Tim, originally from New Jersey, moved west in 2011 and started to work with SDKPR in 2012.  He started as an equipment cleaner and his natural strength and stature quickly earned him a spot on our delivery staff.  During his first delivery route, he had to set-up and host the Funhouse Castle by himself, and from then he was hooked.  Nicknamed "Forklift", Tim can lift anything and has become an integral part of delivery staff.  Next time you want to watch Big Hero 6, rent our inflatable movie screen and Tim  can come host your movie night!
