How many irons do you have?


I have always been a very active person, A-type personality, with many ideas and projects going at one time. From running a robot builder's forum with over 5,000 members at one time, to owning my own Leather tooling Company where I make custom hand tooled leather products, ranging from purses to bible covers.

I wouldn't know what to do with myself if I didn't have ten projects going at one time.


"The Last decade has been the Best years of my Life...and It's only Getting Better!"


I moved to Northern Michigan in 1995 where I worked in a manufacturing plant making auto parts. At this time my creative gene called me to music, where I played in a band for a few years, playing lead guitar, writing music and singing. We recorded around a dozen songs much to the worlds delight.
