After graduating from Ramona Highschool I started into the heavy / industrial construction business in 1974 working as a laborer and apprentice in
petroleum and chemical factories in and around Houston, Texas.
Eventually I mastered the trades of structural ironworker/ crane rigger/ and even learned to operate a 150 ton capacity Manitowoc 4000 crane. In
addition I became a fairly good welder and pipefitter; all while working on a number of electrical generating power plants in several states.
I completed several night courses and completed a couple of semesters in college during this time; taking classes mostly to read blueprints,
structural fitting, rigging, drafting, computer and typing. I was even once a baker's apprentice for a year.
Returning to San Diego, Ca. in 1985 I was encouraged to enter the field of Storefront framing and glass. For the next 10 years I primarily
focused on the fabrication and installation of new storefronts and curtainwalls all over San Diego county and Temecula.
Over time, I also acquired the skills required for the repair and new installation of residential windows, doors, custom glass, mirrors and showers.
In 2007 I pursued my own contractors license and opened a business. My wife Ronell is credited for the name, "Amazing Glass". She is retired from
San Diego City Schools and helps me in several capacities as we work from home.
We now live in Santee, Ca. and have 10 children and 17 grandchildren.
