He has traveled extensively in the USA and overseas and spent considerable time working behind the IRON CURTIAN in Poland, under the auspices of one of the few Licensing Agreements indirectly approved, by the occupying military forces of the Soviet Union.

He holds a BS in International Studies from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, Wisconsin and an MBA in Finance from Lake Forest Graduate School of Management, Lake Forest, Illinois. He currently holds US Patents and has contributed to the development of other patented designs.

He is married, has three children, lives in Colorado, still “chases” steam locomotives, is a DIY aficionado, enjoys collecting Currier and Ives original prints {railroad images preferred}, while scouring antique stores from coast to coast and is currently working diligently on Volume II of MANUFACTUROSAURUS THE SURVIVING SPECIES.
