I spent 50 plus years in the Industrial Fastener Market, from being a Distributor, Independent Rep, Fastener Consultant and more, but finally for the last 35 years as Host of the National Industrial Fastener Show & Conference I founded in 1981 and as the Publisher/Editor of the American Fastener Journal trade magazine; both sold in 2016.  I have authored numerous fastener articles, study guides and educational training materials.  I was honored to be inducted into the Fastener Hall of Fame in 1994.

I stayed retired for about 6 weeks and currently I am working on my new business venture, worldwidefastenersources.com website(s) for sourcing fasteners worldwide.

Married to Jackie McGuire; we have 3 kids and 2 granddaughters we to try to keep up with and their activities.
