He grew up in Oregon and worked for twenty-five years in international marketing in the transportation and paper industries. He retired early, obtained an MA in Teaching and, since 2001, has been teaching Social Studies at David Douglas High School in Portland. He gained a new appreciation for Canadian history in 1998 when he inherited the extraordinary diaries of his grandmother, Maud Johnston Giffin.
