Enjoy yourself and those around you. Life is at best a gamble.
I learned to play poker at a young and impressionable age, and was playing for a living by the age of twenty. I learned to count cards with Ken Uston, and spent five years playing blackjack and collecting casino chips. I developed a deep desire to learn who had started the many casinos of Nevada, and at the time there was very little about the early pioneers of Nevada gaming, so I spent many hours at the Nevada Archives and Nevada Historical Society and interviewing old casino managers and owners before writing articles about what I was able to dig-up.
Accomplishments: Graduate of the University of Nevada Reno Gaming Management Program. Distinguished speaker award from the Casino and Gaming Memorabilia Society. I have given speeches on gaming management, poker, blackjack and card-counting, cheating and a more diverse group of speeches on the history of Virginia City, Gold Hill and early baseball teams of the Comstock.
I hold a BS degree in Marketing from the University of Phoenix.

I am the author of five books, starting with "Nevada's Golden Age of Gambling," now in its fifth edition. This book is available at many bookstores and Amazon in softbound and Kindle editions.
"The Roots of Reno," takes the reader on a journey from the turn of the century into the 1920's and 1930's Reno. This book is completely factual, does not sugar-coat the casino owners or their actions, and details bank fraud, arson, intimidation and organized swindling that occurred on a regular basis.
