I have owned and operated several businesses. For a complete overview of my background I'll be happy to send an electronic copy of a memoir my wife and I wrote titled - Million Dollar Party.
I have been in the auction business actively since 1996. I own Cripple Creek Auctions and we specialized in estate sales, antiques, collectibles, sports memorabilia and more.
For the last ten years I worked part-time for Baker Auction and Estate Sales in Denver, Colorado. We held an auction once a week and I did everything over the years for the owner, bid calling, ringman, clerk, cashier, set-up and tear-down of auctions. The business closed in August of 2019.
