I wanted to open a comic book and collectibles store. That’s when I started collecting. , I was single until two years ago on February 24, 2019. Then I met my beautiful wife. I was a boy from Florida, born and raised, lived there all my life. She was from a military family and was born in Scotland. I met her in a haunted house where we both worked, I was the manager, she was an employee, we started talking and we got together reunited. A year later we got married and then she asked me to move to Tennessee to be closer to her family. My mom passed away about two years ago in November, so I said, pack our bags. My dad was an elderly man in the 80s, we packed him, we packed everything, we sent the kids ahead and n e went to Tennessee. We moved to Crossville, her parents live in Spring City, Tennessee, and I had this dream of opening a comic book store, she made it come true and the rest is history. I am finally in a building, selling bricks and mortar. I started at the local flea market, I was pretty successful and now I’m in the store, hoping to be successful. “
