My career as a silversmith started by chance when I returned from the navy and was looking for work.  I found a temporary position to polish jewelry at Cinruss Creations in Allentown, PA.  They kept me on and taught me the basics of the craft, something I never would have tried otherwise.  Two years later co-worker and friend, Peter Binema, and myself branched out on our own.  He has since moved to Montana and I continued the business alone.  Since then, my work has evolved through the years, changing as my skill grew and new ideas developed.  Many years later I still love my work.  Doing shows and working with galleries has been interesting and rewarding.  Finding new ideas keeps me moving forward to this day.
