Our Senior Designer, Marie A. Blunt, has seen over 450 lighthouses across the United States and Canada. She lectures on lighthouses in and around the local community and serves as a docent at Indiana’s Old Michigan City Lighthouse Museum during the summer tourist season. An avid paper crafter, she designs and tests each of our models.  Numerous modelers have enjoyed building our Lighthouse Cutout Kits®

Our Technical Advisor, Allan W. Blunt, also serves as Marie’s travel partner, staff photographer and husband of 40 years. Together they wrote The Lighthouse Primer: An Introduction to Our Compelling Beacons

Our Editor, Shirley Splittstoesser, is a retired elementary teacher and often found at her booth during local craft fairs or out exploring lighthouses. Other explorations have taken her photo adventuring to all seven continents. She gives travelogs at local community colleges.

Our Deckhands, Pam, Sherry and Dan are grand adventurers and always eager to perform “other duties as assigned.”
