About the Author
Born in the exact center of the North American continent in Winnipeg, Canada. Brutally cold in winter. Unrelentingly stifling in summer. Dale spent his first 9 years on a farm with a wildlife sanctuary just outside the small hamlet of La Riviere, 100 miles South of Winnipeg. As a small boy of 4, a Nature lover, he fell in love with the tales of giant dragons lying about on an escarpment overlooking the prairies barely 25 miles from the farm. It was his 1st introduction to the concept of deep time. When he was 5, Kelloggs introduced him to dinosaurs. By 6, Karel Zeman's 1955 film Cesta do Praveku had set the final path for him to take into dinosaur palaeontology. At 12, from his uncle's CPR train station platform, he would throw his palaeo gear onto the caboose from a passing freight train, race down the tracks and leap onto the rear railcar's coupler, stash his gear and climb up on top of the caboose to get to that escarpment where the fossil marine dragons beckoned. At 19, he was already employed at some of Canada's finest museums. He was the first to join Philip Currie's budding dinosaur program in 1970s Alberta. 1986 saw his last year employed effectively in museum palaeontology. He became self employed creating baby dinosaur exhibits in Calgary. He was instrumental in developing never before heard of sculpturing, moulding and casting techniques still unknown in the field of palaeontology. They surpass the HD quality of silicone rubbers and reduce the costs of building exhibits by 99%.
