This year makes 45 years in the sign business for me. It’s really about all I’ve ever done. After high school, I went to Butera School of Art for a year then transferred to what was then Williamsport Community College, now Pennsylvania College of Technology, for their sign program. After college, I moved back home and thought I would land a job in one of the sign shops in the area.

As it turned out, they were all one-man operations so there were no jobs available. I ended up starting my own shop from my parents’ basement.
