I am hobbyist collector of toys, action figures, trading cards and more for over 30 years. My background experience includes being farm raised, teaching me the value of hard-work. During my college years, I attended that Art Institute of Chicago while gaining valuable commissioned sales experience at both American of Madison and Gateway Computers. Being outdoors came natural to me and eventually led me to a career as a union heavy equipment operator(bulldozers, backhoes,etc..). Early on I realized that I had a passion for actually carving the ground out- into workable commercial and residential sites. The economic downturn hit hard in 2009 and my passion for hobbyist collecting turned into a full-on attempt at selling toys & collectibles. It was successful. I also kept my 60 to 70 hour per week full-time job. Management and multitasking comes easy to me.
