Authentication Guides

Having been in this industry for the better part of 15 years and owning two luxury resale companies, the amount of images and information I have stockpiled is massive. I’m a very visual person so during the pandemic, I figured I would gather everything I had and starting publishing guides of information and images. This was mostly for myself, so I could have a physical copy of all the info I would need when authenticating at my fingertips and the rest is history!

I’ve published 13 books so far with six being companion guides to authentication courses I created when Marque Mentor was up and running but when Marque closes, those books were shuttered but, I am re-recoding everything, adding in new information and will be republishing companion guides!

I am also working on a few other books and will update this page when they are ready for publication! I hope my books are as helpful to you as they are to me!
