I was born and raised in eastern North Dakota in the V of the Sheyenne and Red Rivers. I began my college career at the University of North Dakota where my major was undetermined until I took my first college course in biology and found that my childhood interests (animals, plants, outdoors, optics, experimentation) were encompassed in this broad scientific study.

After graduation, my wife Karen and I moved our little family to western Montana where I would teach high school biology and complete my master's degree at the University of Montana's Flathead Lake Biological Station. After 38 years at Hellgate High School in Missoula, I retired to allow more time with my family and to study and practice the science of imaging nature's beauty.
