For over 30 years I have been actively involved in all aspects of mechanical music as a dealer, restorer, historian, lecturer, and consultant. I maintain a large respected archive for my business. I have written articles for the Journal of the Musical Box Society International and have served on their publication committee. I have written e-articles for MMD, the Mechanical Music Digest with an eye toward promoting the exposure and sale of mechanical music. I have presented many lectures and workshops on various mechanical music topics to the annual meetings of the Musical Box Society International, MBSI; the Automatic Musical Instrument Collector’s Association, AMICA; the Mid-America Chapter of the MBSI, and the National Carousel Association, NCA. I have supplied instruments and music boxes to countless enthusiasts and have helped build some of the largest displays of mechanical music in the world. I have helped form international museum collections. I have been a consultant to corporations that use mechanical music such as the House on the Rock, the Marriott Corporation and the Six Flags Corporation.
