Tell us a little about yourself:
My family immigrated to New Brunswick, Canada, from Denmark when I was 16 years old. I became interested in photography right around that time. I worked as a professional photographer for 29 years and then opened a framing store & gallery which I recently sold. Now I spend most of my time taking photographs and carving stones.
What one thing are you most proud of in your 70 years?
I am proud of many of my photos especially the ones taken along the Bay of Fundy. I have had several shows of both my photos and my sculptures. I am also proud of my daughter who is an amazing jeweler. I have a very supportive wife who I have been married to for 47 years. I feel this is quite an accomplishment in itself.
What one thing would you like to achieve before you reach 100?
Before I reach 100 I would like to go to Iceland and I would really like to take a ride in a hot air balloon.
What one piece of advice would you give your ten year old self?
The only advice I would give to my 10 year self would be to work at something you love because life is short and you will be 70 in a blink of an eye.
