Last Spring I married my beautiful wife, Shanna. Shortly after that we moved into a new home and also found out that we were pregnant! As a result of the move and other life changes, the new White Glove Fans workshop has been a work in progress for nearly three months.

I have been a certified aircraft mechanic for over twelve years. During this time, I have gained extensive knowledge in several separate fields including electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, fluid, paint, and power plant systems. As a former aircraft maintenance supervisor, I became an expert at quality control and inspection by overseeing overall employee production. I have been interested in antiques ever since I was a child and began restoring them around the age of 10. Over the years, I discovered restoring and collecting fans to be my true calling in the antique world. I am now dedicated to restoring fans to perfection full time. My favorite fan is the Thomas Edison glass backed iron clad.
My passion is in the hunt! The most exhilarating part of antique collecting is the search for hidden gems; flea markets, auctions, classified ads, but also in some very inconspicuous places, such as trash piles, estate sales and bargain bins. My background is in business and marketing, but through my friends and co-hobbyists I have been seasoned on the proper methods to bring these historical items back to life in such a way that displays the true beauty of our American history. Although it's hard to pick a favorite fan, I'd have to say my hunt is currently for an Eck hurricane fan.
Often we need parts to complete the restoration of a 100 year old fan. Fortunately for White Glove Fans' team of restoration artists, we have that capability in-house in Bethlehem, PA. More after the break.Read More
