I started designing poker tables during my last year in the military in 2001. The first few tables I built were for my game room and friends. I started a business building custom poker tables and sold them online to individuals for personal use and small casinos. I stayed in the business for a few years which provided me a decent income while I continued going to school part time and raising a family. I eventually received my business degree from Connecticut State University and went to work for various companies such as Pfizer and Dell. I’m now publishing my own authored books on building poker tables using the methods that I’ve developed over the years. I’ve also started a publishing company “Powers Publishing” that focuses on “Do it yourself” and “How to” books and hope to help other aspiring authors achieve success.see more
