Who are you and why should I trust you?

I am a foreign affairs analyst, writer, independent consultant, and classical music YouTube archivist in the Washington DC area. I retired from the US Government in early January 2019 following a 38-year career with the US Department of State's Bureau of Intelligence and Research where I managed, mentored, wrote about diplomacy, politics and military affairs, and explained realpolitik to elected leaders, foreign policy decision-makers, military officials and congressional figures. (My personal website is here.)

I have been listening to great music and collecting LPs since I was a small child. I started selling LPs to quality-conscious collectors and music lovers online in 2000, and am the most reliable and trustworthy individual with whom you will ever work. I respond within an hour or two at most to email inquiries; I am flexible regarding pricing (please feel free to make me an offer on any LP you see listed for sale on this website); and am concerned principally with customer satisfaction -- in more than 18 years of online business I've worked easily and reliably with thousands of individuals from across the globe.

  • I own all of my inventory; all records are in my personal, immediate possession, stored in my smoke free home; please feel free to contact me if you would like additional photos, I will respond promptly.
  • My life / business philosophy is simple; treat others the way I would expect and wish to be treated. In practical terms, this means that I ship your purchase the next day (including Saturdays) and you receive precisely what you have ordered.
  • Barring unforeseen circumstances (snowstorms, etc.), I will ship your order within 18 to 24 hours of your purchase, including on Saturday (the local post office closes at 1 pm).
