Born near Baldur, he grew up at Minnedosa where he developed an interest in writing and art.

In the 1970s, he worked as a business writer with the Winnipeg Free Press and Winnipeg Tribune, was Editor of the Manitoba and Saskatchewan Business Journals, and formed a public relations firm at Winnipeg. He served as President of the Winnipeg Press Club in 1980.

During the early 1980s, as Editor and Publisher of the Manitoba Co-operator newspaper, he researched and photographed old buildings in rural Manitoba that were published in the newspaper and later in a book that received, in 1985, a Margaret McWilliams Award.
