Career Achievements & Qualifications: I have been involved in numismatics professionally since 1978 when I opened a coin store during my sophomore year at California State University Northridge (CSUN). Besides enjoying the opportunity to cater to collectors in the Los Angeles area who had the same passion for coins that I did (and thanks to a close knit family assisting me in the store) I was able to travel throughout the U.S. attending major and much smaller coin shows while cultivating a strong network of dealer contacts, many of whom I still work closely with (and consider friends) today. Over the past seventeen years, including ten years now employed by Bowers and Merena and subsequently Stacks Bowers as their Executive Director of Consignments, I have focused my efforts working extensively with collectors, dealers, and heirs to estates in shepherding their numismatic consignments through the appropriate auctions with the goal of providing maximum exposure for their holdings while also obtaining as much money as possible for our clients. I have personally handled over $100 million in consignments over the years with one of the major highlights of my career consisting of playing an instrumental role, while at Stacks Bowers, in bringing the spectacular $10 million Battle Born Collection of Carson City Mint Coinage to market during the August 7th-10th 2012 ANA Show.
Personal: I was raised in Northridge (in Southern California) with two younger siblings, my brother, Dan, and sister, Sheryl. Our mother, Frankie, was a career Registered Nurse while our father, Ed, taught Elementary School for the L.A City School District for over 34 years. My fascination for coin collecting began at age 8 with my maternal grandfather giving me a small box of obsolete coins that he and my grandmother acquired over the years in their Des Moines, IA theater. With my dad’s passion for history and the westward movement and the fact that we had the same school schedules, including vacation time, whenever we had a few days off, or more, in succession, we found ourselves traveling as close to home as the local deserts, mountains, and beaches to trips throughout the U.S, Canada, and Mexico (including driving up to Alaska on the Al-Can highway back in the summer of 1972). The fact that we consistently visited virtually every museum, National and State Park, Monuments, and Landmarks along the way fostered my love of history and it’s correlation to the study of numismatics. I have been married to Beatriz for 25 years now and have two daughters, Amanda, 24, a recent UCLA grad, as well as Avery, 14, who is a freshman in High School and is working hard to make the Varsity Basketball team. The entire family are dedicated Clippers fans. Our favorite vacation destination is exploring the Hawaiian Islands.
