Born in Elizabeth, NJ. Grew up in Metuchen, NJ.
Became interested in Antiques when I learned that my Great-Great Grandfather was a wooden ship builder on Staten Island, NY and most of his hand tools were still in a chest my grandfather had. In time the tools became mine and I set off on a quest to learn all I could about old tools, and their uses, and find replacements for the tools that were missing from the chest. I was about 14 years old when the tools came into my possession and I've been around Antiques (both buying & selling) ever since.
I now reside in Eastern Pennsylvania with my wife, 2 cats, and more ducks than you can shake a stick at.
