<![if !vml]><![endif]>I am
the founding President of the Paumanok Driving Club of Long Island in
1983 and am a successful competitor in both pleasure and CDE's. I am
currently chairman of the Safety Committee of the CAA and regional
membership representative as well as serving on the board, and a life
member of the ADS. Together with Rita, we have gotten countless
people involved safely into driving. I am a representative for many
harness and carriage makers as well as a network of other carriage
enthusiasts. We can get you started right.
We have not only
sold and ordered new carriages but conserved, restored and appraised
antique carriages. As a member of the CAA Carriage Showcase
committee, I have judged many times and offered comment on a wide range
of vehicles. We have written many articles and given presentations
for the carriage trade. Working closely with the Long Island Museum of
American Art, History and Carriages we have given seminars and helped
train the docents there.
