I've been a Jeweler in excess of 30 years, specializing in Platinum and Gold Custom Design. Although I began my career studying Mechanical Engineering and Architecture, I continued working in my parent’s Jewelry store while attending school. While in school, I also briefly worked as a freelance draftsman remodeling walkups on the Upper Eastside of New York.
I've been a Jeweler in excess of 30 years, specializing in Platinum and Gold Custom Design. Although I began my career studying Mechanical Engineering and Architecture, I continued working in my parent’s Jewelry store while attending school. While in school, I also briefly worked as a freelance draftsman remodeling walkups on the Upper Eastside of New York. It was during this time that I changed my view in pursuing this field of work and realized that what I truly liked was my hobby.
Soon thereafter, I started working with all of my family’s jewelry stores. I started studying and experimenting more with jewelry and felt confident enough to apply for a position with one of the finest jewelers in New Jersey where I interviewed and was hired. In less than a year I became head jeweler and held that position for 4 years.
I then took a position with one of the best businessmen in the jewelry industry. I worked for their family businesses and we started doing Insurance Replacements. After 6 years I decided to move to Georgia and left that position. I traveled for a year doing jewelry designs and selling diamonds in the Midwest. I then accepted a job offer from a large Jewelry Chain Company where I worked for the next 3 years. After that I worked with a designer for one year before I decided to work for myself. I have been working independently since the year 2001 doing custom designs, it is my passion.
