He studied with Ohio bonsaiman Keith Scott  during the late '80's.   Dale and a partner started Wild Things Bonsai Nursery on a part- time basis in 1989 while they worked for G.E. Medical Systems, and Dale went full-time with the business in 1995.  “Wild Things Bonsai Studio” is a full-service dealer of domestic and imported bonsai.  He also sells collected specimens native to the United States.  Included in sales inventory are pottery, tools and other bonsai accessories including oriental art objects.      Dale has been producing his own hand-built, one-of-a-kind stoneware "Wild Things" bonsai pottery for 12 years now and in 2001 won 2nd place (modern category)  in the National Bonsai Foundation's First North American Bonsai Pot Competition that was held in conjunction with the  Asian Arts Festival  which celebrated the  25th anniversary of the bonsai collection at the National Arboretum in Washington D.C.   In the later part of 2002 Dale renamed the pottery portion of his business to “Yakimono no Kokoro”  (Heart of Fired Things) as he felt a more fitting name was needed to express that part of the business.      Dale had a bonsai container in the “From The Hands Of” bonsai pottery display in the 2005 World Bonsai Convention in Washington D.C., and, one of his trees was also chosen for the 5th World Bonsai Convention display.
