I am 62 and am retired from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Fisheries Division. I also worked at Balloonatics for 9 years in partnership with Michael Wiegand who invented the balloon art and has since passed. I live in the Kalkaska area and my wife is from Mexico City, where I spend part of the winter and work on the balloons. Currently I am selling them in a gallery in Charlevoix, Mi. , called Essentials. I am a fishing and hunting enthusiast and also have practiced taxidermy since I was 12. I have won awards for taxidermy and wood carving in the past.
