About me

Gender Male
Occupation Jack of all
Location Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Introduction Born in vibrant Quebec, then transplanted at a young age to the then-drab Greater Toronto Area (no crack-addled mayors back then), your epic hero endured his childhood of alienating urban sprawl and indifferent teachers (No, Mrs. whatever-your-name-was, I did not plagiarize that short story I submitted in Grade 12 English class! Bitch.) to emerge apparently average and mundane from a community college, which failed to teach him the value of avoiding run-on sentences. He then blew the next decade or so road-testing various women, jobs, beers, lawsuits and careers. After valiantly co-creating three children, he discovered they needed to eat, so he settled into a stable blue-collar existence. He now lives just north of Toronto, Ontario, with the latest -- and hopefully last -- love of his life, where he continues to hate cats. He is a Rush fanatic, a coffee lover (though not after 1 pm) and enjoys long walks on the beach between E. Coli outbreaks. He also writes... poorly, but with a determined obstinate stubborn determination. Oh, that's redundant and repetitive.
