If you want to know more about a company, website, or a person, you’ll certainly go to their About page - which I always do. I love reading people's about page especially those who are in the same industry as me. Writing the perfect pitch and crafting a compelling bio is difficult. Writing about oneself, for a writer is a little like asking one of his or her characters to do it instead. It seemingly is more easy to make up a fictitious life story about a nove character than to write my own story. I am not sure why this is. It could be that as writers, we try to keep stories at arms length, because we always know how things will end in the stories that we jot down, and perhaps we just don't want to know the outcome of our own, or make predictions and extrapolations about our own fragile existences by chance.

About Me

I carry a notebook around with me all the time. I am always writing something in it, but no,..sadly its not about you. Until you become as interesting as the people in my story,..just the way it is! I was born in Montreal Canada during the summer, and have a feeling that somehow created a more unique and creative person, than say if I was born in the winter in a different city. I feel like perhaps the places we are from and the times,..create the uniqueness or the similarities in all of us. Then again, I could just be making this up in my head,..its what I do!


I have quite a few interests, it seems to me that a person with an inquisitive mind will over the course of their life, acquire many new interests and hobbies. I love the martial arts, gaming,studying history,electronics/robotics,writing,travelling. I also enjoy outdoor activities like fishing and camping. Sometimes I feel as though there are two me's, one coasting directly on top of the other: the superficial me, who nods when he's supposed to nod and says what he's supposed to say, and some other, deeper part, the part that worries and dreams and complains alot about the things he cannot change,..still a dynamic entity in his own right!... Most of the time they move along in sync and I hardly notice the split, but sometimes it feels as though I'm two whole different people and I could rip apart at any second, but luckily the forces of weak gravity and dark matter hold the whole me in one place.
