I was born on a cold October day in 1975. My love for words became apparent to my family at a young age, when I took to reading, and always had to have a book. This love for books continued on, and soon I was putting my own words to paper. I was always a fan of creative writing, and often impressed my grade school teachers with my fantastic stories. At the age of 15, I wrote a poem called “Abused” for a grade 9 poetry assignment. The power of the poem brought the administration of the school to the classroom with a barrage of questions. Four years later I entered a contest sponsored by the Canadian Chamber of Contemporary Poetry. Of thousands of contestants, I was in the top 200, and had my poem “Bob” published in their anthology “Scaling the Face of Reason”. This was my first true accomplishment, and my first published work. Since then I have been writing, and have had a few articles and a poem entitled ” A Letter to my Unborn Child” published by Parents for Parents Magazine. I currently live with wife, Jocelyn, and our two children Julian And Adora.
