Atfirst, I walked my routes in a small, at the time, in the outer edges or LAcounty. At 16 years old I left home and worked full time in a metalfabrication department for a company that made patio furniture. I was thesecond fastest production operator on the brake and punch out presses in theplant.
The Forman was the fastest. Also crushed 4 digits on my hands.
At 19 years old I was a Sargent in charge of an AirborneInfantry Squad which had a M-60 machine gun crew. I was sent to the Republic ofViet Nam. Was wounded in the end of 67. When I came home I couldn't find acomfortable place to work so started my own business. After about 10,000 belts and a good number of bags, satchels and key fobs Imoved on to Jewelry.Atlanta, Virginia Beach, New York City, all the big towns in Ohio, then on to Detroit, Ann Arbor, Chicago, and many cities in between then back down south. Whiledoing the touring I received over 70 awards for design and craftsmanship. Bythe time I was 40 I had my own jewelry store and became a Graduate Gemologist(GIA) in Delray Beach Florida. During that time, I designed, developed, and taughtthe jewelry program for the Boca Raton Museum. I retired from the store (soldout at 50) and only took on custom work or one-of-a-kind pieces for specialclients. I moved back to Colorado (was born in Denver) about 10years ago.
