I consider myself a lifelong Rockford resident even though I grew up in Cherry Valley. Originally from northern Indiana, I have lived in the Rockford area for most of my life. I served in the U.S. Army Infantry during Vietnam.
I started in the jewelry industry over 35 years ago, working at a menagerie of stores, including my own store in Belvidere. I have worn many, if not all, of the jewelry hats during my career in the business.
These days, I enjoy reading, tinkering around the yard and the outdoors. I am blessed to spend my days with my loving wife, Jan.
I believe I am one of the newest members of the Clodius family, my position being the liaison between the shop and the floor. It is a pleasure getting to know everyone here. Clodius & Co. is a refreshing change from all of the other places I’ve worked through the years. I consider myself very fortunate to work here.
