Scaglione, a former NASA scientist who found his passion in selling art, started off in Southfield, but has grown his company recently with new galleries in Honolulu and Las Vegas. He told Carol Cain, Senior Producer/Host, why he has been forging ahead during the pandemic. He also created a new niche when he started selling collectible art work on cruise ships. Scaglione and his wife also started a foundation to help young women in need who aged out of the foster care system.
