As with most of you my fascination with minerals started at an early age. I have had a "rock" collection as long as I can remember. My interest was truly ignited in college when I took a course in crystallography while pursuing my degree in Electrical Engineering.

I am an avid mineral collector. I have been actively building collections for over 25 years. I started off by field collecting with local clubs in the pegmatites of New England. Sadly now most of my collecting is done by silver picking, purchases at shows and on the internet. I am actively showing and competing with my thumbnail collections in EFMLS and AFMS shows in the States. My two thumbnail collections are specialized to American Classics and Worldwide Oxides.
