Welcome and thank you for taking your time to look around and learn all there is to know about us.

I started my full time taxidermy studio in 1996.  During my career, I’ve had the honor to serve as a Director and President of the PA Taxidermist Association.  I have won numerous awards from Best of Shows to all specialty awards for my work in bird and waterfowl taxidermy.  Additionally, I enjoy mounting all types of small and big game.  I also love to judge and teach taxidermy techniques. Thanks to some great judges and friends, and my experience from years of competing, I have attained the highest honors in the taxidermy industry – 2x PA State Champion.  

I was raised in a home along the Susquehanna River and at a young age I began studying birds and bird behavior, especially in the spring.  Living in the same town as I was raised, not much has changed.  Studying birds is still a favorite pastime of mine, as well as hunting them in the cold winter months.  As the waterfowl season closes each year, I begin looking forward to a new year of fishing and hunting.  Most importantly, I enjoy spending time with my wife, our children, and the rest of our beautifully blended family.
