Default Hello From Illinois

I was born in Wisconsin in 1946 and have made Illinois my home since 1968.
After exhibiting at juried art and craft shows from 1975, I entered the wholesale marketplace in 1988 by exhibiting at BMAC in Valley Forge, PA. I produced functional items using hardwoods realizing the importance of creating work of a lasting quality.
Examples of the stunning architectural projects that I have built and installed are the sound chambers for the electronic organ for Divine Providence Church in Westchester, IL. The cabinets required 360 linear feet of molding which I made from 4/4 walnut lumber to make the face frames.
My first commerce website was build by a designer in 1998. I then dropped my last retail show selling retail on the web while continuing to build my wholesale business. My son Jonathan and I built and launched our website -see signature- selling retail along with password protected wholesale access in May of 2000.
My life’s experience also includes 5 ˝ years of working in the credit reporting and consumer finance industries as well as more than 11 years of employment in the production area of a large manufacturing company. I have coached small business people and presented small business workshops since 1992.
My motto is: Information is power ... Identify and find ways to use information that is available ... Work smarter not harder!
Tom
