Personal Summary

Attending and graduating auctioneer school was one of the most gratifying endeavors I've ever engaged in, 

My public-speaking career began in 1974 as an announcer at horse shows then rodeos. That led to me seeking an auctioneer school as I truly love entertaining large groups with my sense of humor and on-stage presence. 

After auction school, my first events were bake sales and pancake breakfasts.  ( We all gotta start somewhere, huh?)

I gained experience working at farm and estate sales as well as livestock auctions.

In 1986, I attended a seminar on benefit auctions with Dick and Sharon Friel in Seattle and was hooked on serving worthy causes.

Outdoor and conservation groups are a favorite as well as youth groups. 

My career has been extremely gratifying and I've met some wonderful people and celebrities along the way.

I look forward to many, many more
