My Sutter’s Mill Finds (SM42, 1.6g total)

For as long as I can remember, I have always been a collector. As an adult, all it took was watching one episode of Meteorite Men in October 2011 to realize I could buy, sell and collect (read that as obsess over) meteorites. In September of 2015, I decided to follow my passions for business consulting and meteorites and start my own businesses.

Here is everything you need to know about me:

  1. My reputation is my most precious asset. Trust, integrity and respect are the cornerstones of my personal and professional life.
  2. I forever guarantee the authenticity of my items. If there is ever a problem or even a question, I’ll make it right. Provenance and chain of custody are critical to science and building a collection that will hold its value. I work diligently to get that information for you.
  3. I conduct my business as if we are creating a relationship, not conducting a transaction.
  4. Quality service and professional conduct are paramount to me. I will help you in any way I can. Even if it is to encourage you to buy a specimen from another dealer. It’s a big world with plenty of opportunity for everyone and I have no time for petty rivalries.
  5. Education is key to enjoying meteorites and tektites. I strive to educate myself at every opportunity and am happy to share my knowledge with you.
  6. I’m low drama and keep my and our business private. My client’s satisfaction and happiness is my reward. I do not need to brag or advertise a big sale. However, please forgive me if I excitedly share a new addition to my collection.
  7. I believe in supporting science and the institutions that promote meteorite knowledge. I also believe in furthering the interests of collector organizations around the world, especially those that support outreach to our local communities. I am an IMCA (International Meteorite Collectors Associated) member (#8395) since August 2012, have had the honor to serve as a Board member since October 2014 and am presently serving as Vice President since Oct. 2019. I am also a member of The Meteoritical Society since August 2012, and presently serving on the MetSoc Membership Committee since March 2018.
  8. I value your time. I strive to respond to email inquiries and questions in a timely manner during normal business hours. If you do not hear back from me, ask again.
  9. I value my time. Many of the specimens listed on this website, especially rare ones, required a significant time investment to research, locate, acquire, prepare, curate and/or photograph. Though I will gladly work with you on price when possible, I will not compete with someone dumping material on the market. I work for myself as a business consultant and as a meteorite dealer – that is how I support myself and my family. I focus on providing value and providing the best possible service.
  10. Business is business, and friendship is friendship. You will never hurt my feelings if you decide to buy from a different dealer or you choose not to purchase a specimen in my collection. I realize this is a strange thing to say for a website, but our community often relies on phone calls to finalize deals. If you need to call me to get more details on a specimen, arrange for different shipping or payment terms, please pick up the phone and let’s chat. As most of you know, I am also available through FB messenger, Skype, WhatsApp, WeChat and texting.
