This blog gives me the opportunity to write about all of the amazing historical artifacts I come across in my work as media collector and appraiser.

I am a member of the National Auctioneers Association, a graduate of the NYU appraisal studies program, and have successfully completed the USPAP course and exam highlighting the congressionally recognized standards promoted by the Appraisal Foundation.

In addition to independent appraisal consultations I have spent over eight years as a rare book dealer in Seattle and Los Angeles, over five years as a principal appraiser for Housing-Works in New York City, and since 2013 have been employed as a property specialist at Julien’s Auctions in Los Angeles where I handle celebrity estates and collections.
