All my life, I was fascinated by timepieces and began teaching myself clock repair at the age of 15 by assembing and disassembling clocks. I can repair almost any clock including atmospheric and traditional mechanical clocks.
Being born and raised in Romania, I saw first hand that "communism is a cancer" to the people. After living through and observing the chaos, civil unrest, and violence that followed the Romanian Revolution, I applied to immigrate to the U.S. After 6 months, my application was accepted, and I sold all my possessions to purchase airfare tickets for my family from Bucharest to Chicago. I arrived in the U.S. in October 1995, accompanied by my wife, daughter, and son.
I enjoy pleasing customers by restoring clocks that have been in their family for decades or generations. Having been in America for almost 22 years, I believe I bring "old world" craftsmanship to my handiwork.
