Digging has fascinated James Peterson, Southern Exposure's founder, as long as he can remember. From the time he could toddle, he spent his time outdoors digging holes in the sandbox. As he got older, his interest in digging grew into an obsession: he knew he'd found his life's calling.


After receiving her PhD in Electrical Engineering from the Stanford University, he knew he couldn't spend his time in an office. Wanting to get his hands dirty once again, he started Southern Exposure, specializing in excavating and digging big holes in the ground.
