I’m a Certified Gemologist Appraiser. I’ve been in this business 25 years now and it’s still the case that every day is different. Every day there’s some wonderfully unpredictable interaction with a customer. It makes this job one that’s never dull. Away from work, I enjoy going to baseball card shops with my kid just for the fun of ripping open the packages and seeing which players we got. Yes, I like sports, but outside of hanging out with my family I can be found sitting in a chair reading. Lee Childs, Tom Clancy, and Vince Flynn novels are my favorites.
