Apart from operating Bondpix Freelance Photography, designing and updating the Bondpix website and new online store, I am the Executive Director of the Powell County Chamber of Commerc in Deer Lodge Montana. The Chamber represents local businesses and helps promote our county for business and tourist visitors. You can see the website that I designed and maintain at Powell County Chamber of Commerce.

Old Montana PrisonI also work for the local Powell County Museum & Arts Foundation, which runs the Old Montana Prison complex. The foundation helps support the local community in many ways, not least in running the Museums in and around the old Territorial Prison. Apart from the old prison buildings, the complex houses the Montana Auto Museum, Yesterday’s Playthings (toy and doll museum), Frontier Montana (Western and firearm museum), Powell County Museum and Cottonwood City (old historical buildings, including a working blacksmith). I am employed as an Online Sales clerk, and run their Ebay store as well as their online gift shop at My wife Valerie is the main gift shop clerk in the Visitors Center and assists in the Curators Office.

I have also helped in the design and layout of the Museum Visitors Guide and other publications, adverts and flyer’s, and designed their new logo. I also run the Museums online blog

The Museum is a fascinating place to work and visit. The Old Prison is home to a large number of paranormal expreriences, from full body apparitions, glowing orbs, strange sounds and voices (EVP), and other inexplicable events. Ghost tours are planed in the future, as well as full Paranormal Training courses for those who would like to learn how to identify, and explain, many of the strange happenings.
