My Background

I am a past president of the Contemporary Longrifle Association, and a past president of the American Custom Gunmakers Guild. A full time custom gun maker since 1976, I worked as journeyman with John Bivins in Winston-Salem, N.C., in 1978 and 1979.

I was guest curator of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts Exhibition "Three Centuries of Tradition- The Renaissance of Custom Arms Making in America, 1640-1940" and co-authored with Wallace Gusler, the hard cover book that accompanied the exhibition. I am a veteran of the U.S. Navy serving from 1967-1971; and attended Wayne State University from 1971-76.
