He is married and has lived on Cape Cod since 1973. He is an avid ocean kayaker who designs and builds his own wooden kayaks. Along with his wife he has had a TV show on woodstrip kayak construction and also markets a how-to video out on that subject.

His favorite kayaking spot is the lakes and Baltic ocean around eastern Sweden. He comes from a long line of photographers and always has a camera with him when he travels.

The picture is of him with the skeleton of a Fin whale he found while kayaking the small islands off of Nantucket MA.
