Open House TBD
I spent the first 24 years of my life in California. The majority of it in Southern
California, but did live in Northern California for a few years. I consider myself
somewhat of a Disneyland & Knotts Berry Farm historian. But having lived here
in Arizona now for the biggest part of my life I consider Arizona home.

My wife & I like to take road trips. We would rather drive than fly anywhere.
Most of our trips are centered around Ballparks & Quilt shops. This past summer
we took Rte. 66, the mother road, from Holbrook, AZ to Chicago.
I worked in the moving industry for just over 25 years. I "left", the moving
industry in 2001, although you never really leave the moving industry, to work in
the family business, Gateway Acceptance Company. It's a business that my
father started in 78, that helps small business get started by allowing them to
obtain a line of credit against their commercial accounts receivable, so they don't
have to wait the 30,60, 90 days for their customers to pay.
I'm also involved with "Send Out Cards". Send Out Cards allows people to stay
in touch with people by providing a way to send a high quality personalized card,
that is delivered by the postal system anywhere in the world, from your
computer, or for that matter anywhere you have access to the internet.
If you'd like to know more about how easy it would be for you to get connected
or reconnected with customers, family or friends, give me a call & I'd be happy
to show you how "Send Out Cards" can help you!
