When I was in high school back in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, I had an art teacher who also happened to letter helmets for race car drivers, including Mario Andretti. I would hang out after school and watch him. He gave me a few brushes and got me started.

I graduated from high school in 1977 and I started doing race cars. John Gregory had a shop there building race cars and gave me my first car to letter. Soon I was doing three cars a week.
