In 1946 my grandfather opened a neon manufacturing company in Glendale California and quickly developed a reputation of top quality workmanship. My father joined in when he was fifteen and took over the business after my grandfather retired in 1977.
I started neon glass blowing in 1978 and took over the business in 2000. After 30 years of neon glassblowing I too retired and let my daughter take the business over. She still runs that business to this day. Not only has our company maintained its reputation of the highest standards of neon workmanship, it has also been the largest and longest family-run neon shp on the west coast.
After a brief retirement, I was encouraged by friends and business associates to come out of retirement. That is where I am today. I am now free to practice my trade without the pressure of big business, so that I can focus on top quality workmanship as my grandfather taught us.
