 PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Experience has come not only from a vast academic background over the past 50 years but also from a wide range of personal work situations. I have authored or co-authored books and articles ranging in scope from medical diagnostic topics to fine art. I have bought and sold many items through auctions, house sales, and private treaty sales. I have conducted numerous auctions dealing with merchandise and property from Fortune 500 companies, variety stores, electronics companies, medical instrument companies, hardware stores, stationary stores, and high end fine art and antiques galleries. Among the more notable auctions I have organized and conducted were the estates of Laura Branigan (Pop Singer from the 1980’s); military hero and oldest living Marine Corp veteran, Colonel Freddy who was known to have been involved in WWI, WWII, the Korean Conflict, and Vietnam; and the dissolution of the TDK Corporation in Port Washington, New York. I have acted as a professional personal property appraiser for attorneys, insurance companies, businesses, and private individuals. The highest profile individual’s estate I have appraised was that of the original art created byMichael Jackson in 2013  and again in 2014.  I am an international art agent and have facilitated the sale of major works of art such as those painted by Picasso, Renoir, and many American masters. Presently I am the President and CEO of Go Green Antiques and Auctions, Ltd., Curator and director of Circa Something Gallery, Senior Appraiser for PARC East Appraisers, and a Licensed NYS Real Estate Broker.
