I began my love of motorcycles when I was nine, but didn’t have my first one until I was 12, so I’ve only been playing with them 42 of my 54 years. In the 1990’s, having had a good first career as the owner of an advertising photography studio in Atlanta, Georgia, I began to drift toward wanting to do more advanced work on my bikes, which over the years included Harley Davidsons, Nortons, Moto Morinis, Ducatis, and Moto Guzzis. At that time the focus of my lust had become, as it remains, the mighty Vincent.
Realizing I wanted to expand my abilities, I enrolled in an Atlanta area community college through which I got a second degree, this time in machine tool technology. I then started assembling the machine shop tools I needed to work on my own Vincents. Over time, my name got out as a guy who could do what needed done, and the photography studio became less and less important to me.
In the early 2000’s the decision was made to close the studio, move out of the city, and devote myself full time to the machines I had come to love. It has pretty much been all Vincents all the time ever since.
I love the machines. I love what I do.
