He is currently president of the Wisconsin Federation of Stamp Clubs, an umbrella group of 30 clubs in the philatelic hobby, and a member of the American Philatelic Society and the Central Wisconsin Stamp Club. He is a freelance magazine writer on stamp collecting subjects.
Whether the collection is focused on images of presidents and musicians, colorful photos of flowers, historic sites, or emblems honoring those who have waged battles for freedom, health, and love, U.S. stamps offer a unique glimpse at history. This pocket-sized guide to U.S. stamps pays tribute to these various categories of popular postage with 1,000 detailed color photos, and offers collectors details and pricing in 4,200 listings.
