I have been a stamp collector almost all my life, and this wonderful hobby not only gave me relaxation, but most importantly allowed me to broaden my intellect, and learn many things about the world’s history, arts, culture, nature and geography.

         I firmly believe that a true philatelist can not be satisfied by merely acquiring stamps and storing them in his or her albums. One of the most enjoyable aspects of stamp collecting is the process of sharing knowledge, ideas and news with fellow philatelists using print media and internet. Another great facet of philately is the course of creating an exhibit with a purpose to display it at a stamp show, so others may see and appreciate it.

        Throughout many years of stamp collecting I successfully participated in various local, national and international philatelic shows, and this part of my website presents two of my multi-frame topical exhibits, one single-frame topical exhibit, and one multi-frame display exhibit which were created and exhibited most recently.
