Hi Friends,  

Many of you now know that my new hobby (as if I need another one) is saving history through Metal Detecting.  The pictures on the left of this home page is just a few of my recent finds.  Stay tuned for more history discoveries to come this  summer and Fall.

Some of you may know that I have been working on a most interesting and fun project with Pioneer TV in western MN.  We are working on creating a 1 hour video on country churches, schoolhouses and barns.  I have been out discovering stories and will start filming in early September.  Stay tuned for more details on the project. 


Finally back to listing my speaking schedule.  Thanks for understanding this past year that I was unable to list it due to some security issues.  Fixed and now back on schedule.   Here are August through September  events.

I am continuing to work with a number of senior living communities throughout MN by providing art work for the facilities.  See note below on "Memories in Art".  This has become a great way to allow my photography to positively impact our seniors in their golden years.   


The best way to navigate on the site is to use the "Browse" tab and find the subject you are looking for.  I have put all my galleries into basic search folders by subject.  It should be clear once you go into the "Browse"


Thanks again for visiting my site.
