About Me


At the age of 13, I thought about becoming a locksmith after seeing an ad in a magazine called Popular Mechanic. Around the age of 19 years old, I picked a master lock with just a small screw driver and a carpet needle. When I was unemployed in January 1992, for about a year, I learned how to be a Locksmith through a mail ordering school, Foley-Belsaw Company. After I completed the courses, I bought my tools, key blanks, and some lock picking tools to open cars and most any type of locks. My first big job just after I finished my locksmithing course was rekeying a 15 unit motel with a Master system. I met the owner Marlee of Marlee's Restaurant & Lounge in Enumclaw, WA, through a friend of mine at a local photo lab where we both worked. Marlee introduce me to Pete, the owner of the Ridge Motel just behind Marlees business. Pete wanted his 15 unit motel rekeyed with a master system. This would be my first master system rekey job. It took me about a few days to do it. I had to drive from Seattle, WA, to Enumclaw, WA, a few times but I got the job done and Pete was happy. Pete also owned a 7-11 store in Seattle, WA. After that I have done a few locksmithing jobs that just paid for all my locksmithing tools and supplies. My business name back then and now is Mark's Locksmith. After I finished a 4 year college degree in Video Communications at CWU, I then moved to Eugene, Oregon to work at KVAL Ch 13. When I moved to Beaverton, OR, I was an Apartment Manager for a small apartment complex and started my locksmith business. After 5 years of being an apartment Manager and getting my locksmith business going here I quit the apartment manager job, Nov 2011, and am now working full time as a locksmith.

My Security background: at age 19, I was a Security Guard, and at age 35, I was a Store Detective.

One of my hobbies since age 18 is Photography. Here is my web site (M.E. Studios). My other hobbies is keeping all my computers up and running. I am a self taught Computer technician since 1983. My computer website is: Fix My Computer, Mark.com

My Oregon Construction Contractors Board (CCB) License Number is 186343
My Oregon Certified Locksmith Certificate Number is 5063OCLS

I'm single. I'm too shy to ask out any of my pretty female customers. I think of myself as kind of a handyman. I have good experience in electronics and electricity. I have taken a few classes on these and have worked with electricity and electronics since the age of 12. I understand the concept very good.

The locksmith magazines I read are Locksmith Ledger, The Independent Locksmith Journal, and The National Locksmith.

The New SmartKey(tm) Lock

Kwikset SmartKey™

Good thing about buying the SmartKey™ lock:
Nobody can pick the lock if you get locked out.
You can rekey the lock yourself as many times as you want.
