Modern and Vintage Watch Services, Hand Made Watches, Jewelry and Shadow Sculpture of
once described Me as a creative manifestor,
I like that, it sounds good. Many projects are always in the
Watchmaking to date has been
the most rewarding. Naturally a finished product is important but
the process involved is a real kick too !.
I am a Independent Watchmaker selling and servicing modern and vintage timepieces. I am a Honors graduate of the A.A.S Horology Technology program at Texas Institute of Jewelry Technology at Paris Junior College in Paris, Texas. I operated my own watch sales and repair business before joining the faculty at my alma mater of TIJT in 1991 as Instructor of Horology. I served in that capacity for 27 years. My main interests are vintage timepieces and designing and fabricating watch cases and watch parts. I served as director of the Research and Education Council of AWCI and was elected as an officer to the board of directors of the AWCI. I attended the WOSTEP Train the Trainers program in Neuchatel, Switzerland, I'm a member of the NAWCC and a Charter member of "The Chronometer Club". I'm a year round Scuba Diver, Musician, amateur Astronomer and collector of prehistoric artifacts.
I also have 2 workshops for different types of Fine Watch Repair Services. That includes electronic timing and cleaning machines as well as large and small metric lathes, polishing and forging equipment,
Vintage parts that are unavailable can be custom made to bring your watch back to life.

Some of the other projects in the works involve Jewelry and Metal Sculptures.
Both are unconventional...and yet, they work so well together.
Titanium and Silver Wings Necklace
Shown on a life size copper mesh body cast. This form
truly comes to life when spot lighted as it casts
what appear to be 3 dimentional shadows.
Hypnotic and Mesmerizing.......
Looking for Dinosaurs
is just too neat !
Looking for things underwater is even better !
I love to Scuba dive.
During the day I spend a lot of time
looking through a 10X loop to see watch parts up close
At night I look through a 10 inch reflector telescope to
see large things a long long long way away
Most Galaxys look smaller then watch parts !!
Keep Looking Up
Without a doubt My longest running way
to enjoy time's passage has to be playing musical instruments.
Right now the Gibson Mastertone Banjo gets the nod most of the time.
Of course...the most enjoyable time is
spent in the company of Laura. She's my very best friend, my favorite Scuba Diving Buddy and Fossil Hunting Companion and she also happens to be married to Me.
Life is Good
