He attended the University of Alberta, receiving his doctorate in Sociology. He became an independent filmmaker and professional photographer. In the mid-seventies, he went down to visit the old Montefiore colony near Sibbald, Alberta, and photographed what remained of it. While in the area, he interviewed the remaining residents and made 22 oral history tapes for the Provincial Museum. He also later traveled to Los Angeles, where some residents lived, and interviewed them, as well as collecting personal histories and family photographs.
