I’ve been interested in anything with an engine since I was a young child.
My story starts as a little boy on a dairy farm in Vermont. I played with toy tractors and loved making engine sounds to mimic the real thing. I drove my first vehicle, an Oliver Super 55 tractor, at 5 years old. My grandfather put me on it and let me drive around a field by myself. I have the tractor today and it’s restored and I drive it still.
In time I moved to Ohio to build my career in Cleveland Ohio, while continuing to spend as much time as possible on the family farm in Vermont. I collect interesting tractors and a few cars and motorcycles.
