His articles and photographs have appeared in magazines as varied as National Geographic Traveler, Time, and AAA's Home and Away; regional newspapers including the Des Moines Register and the Omaha World-Herald; and with clients such as the National Park Service's HABS/HAER division, Iowa Tourism, and Nebraska Tourism.

He lives across the Missouri River from Omaha in Council Bluffs, Iowa, with his wife Dorie Stone, and children Alex, Meredith, and Graham.
