Bruce moved to the HEB area in 1972 and began a 30 year career in the optical industry as an optician and sales representative. After almost 12 years as both a laboratory and dispensing optician, he was recruited by an optical supply company to become an area manager in a sales position, covering Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico. After 16 years in sales, he helped Luck Optical open their expansion location.
Along the way, Bruce married his wife, Pat in 1996 and moved to Euless, where Pat has lived since 1973. In 2000, Bruce and Pat opened the first Salon G in North Richland Hills and Bruce left the optical business to concentrate on their business. They expanded the original location in 2001 and opened a second location in Euless in 2002 at Glade Road and Highway 121.
In 2007, Bruce and Pat opened Salon G Spa in a new, free-standing building on highway 121.
Bruce and Pat enjoy traveling, camping, snorkeling, and spending time with their 8 year old grandson, Jake.
Bruce is a founding member of the Euless Small Business Association, which was formed in 2012 with the purpose of promoting the growth of small businesses in Euless.
