I am a restorer of antique violins that have been severely damaged. I was trained in organ restoration and construction by my father and migrated over to violins as a result of my wife being a violin professor. I have trained with professionals in both violin, organ, piano and museum restoration in both PA and NY. These days I only restore for my own private collection and my wife's students. I run a contracting firm on the side (to support my love of old violins).
