I’m a newspaper reporter by trade born and raised in Alberta, Canada. Before a stroke in 2010 zapped my ability to read and write, I had an eclectic career and was an active volunteer.
I covered politics as a reporter, worked as a TV news producer, was a communications director in government, did PR for an international beer maker and worked for global pharmaceutical companies.
I’ve also spent many years volunteering with the homeless and disenfranchised in Edmonton Alberta’s inner city. More recently I’ve helped stroke victims and their families as part of a peer support program. And I’m back making my living in the pharma industry.
But most importantly, I’m Patricia’s husband and dad to two university students, Kristina and Anna.
I travel as much as possible and chat up everybody who is willing to trade stories, at home and afar.
I’ve also written my first book and am desperately hunting for an agent or publisher! It’s called: Where Are My Shoes? Recollections of a man who’s brain betrayed him.
