As a young man I started working at a local antique auction house holding up furniture for another auctioneer. When I turned 18 years old I joined the United States Air Force, and was part of the 72nd Security Forces (military police) at Tinker Air Force base. I did a tour in Ali Al Salem after the Yeman attacks. I also was on the front gate after Sept. 11 if any of you remember the long waits! I decided to find a different path and was honorably discharged in 2003. I decided I'd like to start my own business and attended Missouri Auction school in 2004. I love the auction business as I get to help people and do something I enjoy. Emilee and I have two wonderful children Avery (14 yr) & Dannie (12 yrs). We also have two other companies that we own and operate. My hobby is listing on ebay where I keep around 20,000 listings up.
