Magiera had been a creative businessman for more than 40 years. In 1999, he founded a company called Dove Homes of Texas. Over a period of six years, he designed, built and sold standard and custom homes to people in Irving and Arlington, Texas. His wife, Sheila, handled all the financials. In the following decade, they moved their business practices and income by purchasing and setting up rental properties.
In 2007, Magiera developed and produced a gourmet preparation product called Flaming Skewers and sold it to Holland America Cruise Line. Every ship used Flaming Skewers in their fine dining restaurants. In 2012, Magiera invented and patented a product called ArmoredCloset. It was the first modular, all-steel tornado shelter/saferoom that could be installed inside any existing home. The patented safe room remains in business to this day… www.ArmoredCloset.com
