I was born in Hungary, escaped the war and later immigrated to the United states in 1957. Pigeons were always a part of my life in Hungary. First raising them and then surviving on them as the war played out in my country.

Looking for the "American Dream", I immigrated to the U.S. in 1957. Soon after, I married and started a family. In 1970 when my boys were 7 & 9, they wanted to raise pigeons. Well, as you know how pets and young enthusiastic kids go, my boys lost interest and I had to take over. I was very excited about having pigeons in my life again!

I started flying pigeons in the San Gabriel SGI Club. Here I met my long time friend John Weldon, a top flyer in the club. I was interested in buying birds from Weldon, but he would  only loan them to me.  My foundation birds are from John Weldon's Heremans, although no pedigrees were recorded because Weldon did not believe in them.

Later I purchased a Hofkin hen from Leo Broekx & Merkx Verhayen and flew these birds until 2000. Many of my successes and accomplishments were from these birds!

In 1999 I traveled to Belgium("The Pigeon Capital") and met a man named Luk VanMechelen who raised pigeons from the Jensen family.  I purchased 2 pair from Luk and in my first year flying I took 1st Overall! Later, I crossed the Heremans family with the Hofkin familiy and that is what's in my loft today.

These birds out perform competitors in desert temperatures and strong head winds. They are beautiful pigeons! My birds have the best success record in San Diego races where they handle the toughest conditions!
