I was born in Saskatoon and originally grew up on an acreage near the city where my parents did all sorts of hobby farming, and where I liked to skate on the rink in the back yard and pretend I was Wayne Gretzky.

Then we moved to Alberta where I went to high school in Lacombe, just north of Red Deer, and played defensive line on the football team.

I have lived in Edmonton, Calgary and Toronto and have taught at schools in Okotoks and Red Deer.

I enjoy taking trips to B.C to visit friends and to go hiking in the mountains. I particularly enjoy the area north of Vancouver near Whistler. Other hobbies include reading and creative writing and I actually got the chance to take a writing course from a Nobel Prizewinner. In the past, I have also done a fair amount of volunteer work with the Ponoka Youth Centre.

I have mostly taught Social Studies and English, but have also ended up teaching a few other courses along the way, such as Foods, where I and my students got to make everything from spinach and cheese pastry tohoney garlic ribs to cheesecake.

I currently live in Edmonton, Alberta, but most of my family still lives in the area north of Red Deer, where they have three wiener dogs, Waffles, Merci and Eddie.
