I started my career in photography after graduation from Moorhead State College with photography positions at the Daily News in Wahpeton, ND. , Country Echo in Pequot Lakes, The Journal in New Ulm and settling at the Brainerd Dispatch in 1975. I have been teaching fine art black and white and color photography at Central Lakes College for the past 15 years. Currently I have been teaching Underwater Photography for Central Lakes College and the Minnesota School of Diving for the past 7 years. From May to November you can find me at the Mineland Recreation Area either scuba diving and photographing the fish or enjoying the beauty of our area’s newest lakes.

Fat Tuesday in the Christian tradition is usually marked with celebration before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. Fat Tire Tuesday happens every Tuesday night in the Cuyuna Country Recreation Area and is marked with laughter and cyclists riding their fat tire bike on snow groomed trails under the light of their head lamps. Every Tuesday at 8 p.m. avid fat tire cyclists begin their night ridge at the Croft Mine Parking lot or the Miners Mountain Rally Center near the Pennington access.
