My interest in the industrial landscape began at the tender age of 7, while watching a conductor poised in the copula of a speeding Soo Line caboose. A few years later, I would discover photography, my 'passport' for adventure and exploration of the natural and man-made worlds. The exposure to the world of industrial archaeology has helped me to focus my interests and passions into documenting the buildings, structures, and people involved in our industrial heritage. Pursuing the industrial landscape is a worldwide endeavor, with destinations including Germany, France, Malaysia, Canada, Norway, Scotland, and the United States.
