I was a dealer in antiques prior to 1987 at which time I founded my appraisal practice. I now specialize in the appraisal of antiques, collectibles, and residential contents as a generalist knowledgeable in furniture, glass, ceramics, metals, silver and textiles. I have been actively involved with the International Society of Appraisers (ISA), one of the foremost appraisal credentialing Societies in the world. I am one of less than 200 ISA members which is a “Certified Member”. I am also a past-member of the Board of Directors and Treasurer of the International Society of Appraisers and past Instructor of the ISA Antiques and Residential Contents course which is required for ISA certification.
