I am a lifetime baseball fan who collected more than 10,000 baseball autographs (including duplicates) before I graduated high school. I graduated college from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1982 and served as an Airborne-Ranger qualified Infantry Officer until I left the Army in 1988. When I returned to the private sector, I took a job with a fortune 100 pharmaceutical company where I worked in sales and management until 1999. Since then I have been self-employed in the world of baseball and sports autographs as a memorabilia agent (for Warren Spahn, Whitey Ford, and others), an authenticator, appraiser and dealer of sports autographs--stopping only for a year to get a masters degree at Johns Hopkins School for Advanced International Studies (SAIS, in 2002). I have published one book and several articles on baseball and autograph related topics. And I have attended more than thirty baseball Fantasy Camps, which have served as the inspiration for a baseball-themed, romantic dramady screenplay, Catching Jo, which I co-authored. Catching Jo has won two screenplay contests, and we are presently working to complete Catching Jo, the novel, which we hope to finish this year.
