I have been collecting bottles since 1976 and have been a member of the Milwaukee Antique Bottle and Advertising since 1977. I am currently the President of the MABA and throughout the years I have served the club in the positions of President, Vice President, Director, and Show Chairman.

I started collecting bottles while pursuing another hobby of mine, SCUBA diving. I found some bottles while diving in a lake in Wisconsin and went to the library to attempt to find any information that I could about them and one thing led to another and soon I was deeply immersed in both hobbies.

Through the bottle collecting hobby and as a member of MABA I have learned a lot about the history of Milwaukee and Wisconsin and have networked with many collectors and made lasting friends. I enjoy talking about my collection and showing it to fellow collectors. I also particularly enjoy talking with individuals that are interested in getting started in the hobby, sharing with them what I have learned and answering questions.

What I Collect:

- Wisconsin Beer Bottles – both embossed glass bottles and stoneware (pottery) bottles
- Blob Top Wisconsin Soda Bottles
- Colored Seltzer Bottles – from the Milwaukee area
- Milwaukee Whiskey Bottles
- Wisconsin Beer Bottle Openers
- Bottles from Marquette Michigan
