He grew up on a farm at Balmoral and made a few trips of his own to Winnipeg Beach as a youth, although it was usually by car. Hit by the writing bug, he worked his way through community newspapers in Dauphin, Rosetown (Saskatchewan), and Portage la Prairie before ending up a little in-house newspaper at the University of Manitoba. Working on a university campus led to taking some classes in history, and then some more classes in history and then eventually to completion of a PhD in history at the University of Toronto. He is presently (2020) an Associate Editor of Prairie History.

His articles for the Manitoba Historical Society:

Winnipeg Beach by Moonlight
