Born and raised in Chicago’s northern suburbs. He started university studies in architecture, a chance to live in Paris, France, for many months between my sophomore and (delayed) junior year, permanently shifted his focus to photography and journalism.
He graduated from University of Kansas with a BS in journalism and minors in art history and psychology. He worked for two years at the Kansas City Star, then returned to home town for nine years with the Chicago Sun-Times. His growing interest in automobiles and their engineering and design led him to Detroit’s AutoWeek magazine for more than a year, before returning to daily newspaper journalism at the Los Angeles Times. He remained at the times for 11 years and was involved in several projects that earned the paper the Pulitzer Prize.
While at the Times, he wrote and photographed first book, American Muscle, in 1989. He fell in love with the process and its challenges. In 1995, after completing another seven books, he left the Times and became a full-time author.
In 2011, Pete Stout, editor of Excellence Magazine, asked him to become the magazine’s Historical Editor. He lives in Santa Barbara, California. When he is not traveling he serves as a docent on alternate weekends at the Mullin Automotive Museum, an extraordinary collection of French cars, in nearby Oxnard, California.
