Teacher. Writer. Speaker. Painter.
We all have stories to tell.
Reading changes the world.
Libraries are awesome, and so is nature.
We are all learners, doers, and teachers.
I used to work in the Public Service of Canada. I don't anymore.
I used to sell my paintings on eBay, but now I sell them on Etsy. You can check them out here.
I teach part-time at Carleton University in the English Department. I like all fiction but really love postmodernism and science fiction. I have also taught at Algonquin College.
I ride my bike long distances, like several hundred km on one outing. I think about things a lot when I'm riding.
I really enjoy helping others discover their writing talents and facilitate the telling of their stories. I run lots of writing workshops and often publish the stories that come out of them.
And I also do speaking engagements at schools, businesses, and other organizations on a wide variety of subjects, that all relate to art and literature.
Creative Writing Workshops
Along with facilitating writing and painting workshops, I also offer individual editing and consulting services. If you're an aspiring writer and are looking for personal coaching, I may be able to help you out. My rates are fair and my commitment to your success is outstanding. If you'd like to know more about my personal editing and coaching services, contact me here.
Are you looking for a speaker for your organization? I've given hundreds of presentations over the years and I can provide you with a range of speaking options. My general themes focus on inspiration, connection, spiritual growth, and our human experience. I present these through relevant references to art, literature, popular culture, psychology and science. And, I always modify my talks to the needs of your specific audience.
