Bio: I first started blacksmithing seriously in 1984 and started a part time blacksmithing business in 1990. At that time I worked full time as a Firefighter for the City of Aurora. In 2014 I retired from that carrier and picked up may hammer full time. Today Black Bear Forge specializes in tools and hardware for traditional wood workers. I am also starting a journey into making educational videos for other blacksmiths on YouTube.
