Hi there. Welcome to my website. To take a short-cut directly to information about one of my books, my research and credentials, examples of my commercial illustrations, my drawings, and my services, head to the menu at the top of the page now, where you will also find a career overview. Otherwise, keep reading. And visit my Blog for book excerpts, archived magazine articles, and original posts.
I am the author or co-author of about twenty works of non-fiction (and counting), and have published innumerable magazine articles. I’ve written widely on history, business, science and technology, the environment, and sport. While I have published recent works with academic presses, my writing is pitched at the discerning general reader, and I pride myself in explaining complex things for general audiences. You can find entries I have written for Henry Hudson, John Cabot, Nortel, and Tim Hortons at the Canadian Enclopedia, a resource aimed at school-age readers. Other clients include Cottage Life, ON Nature, Canada’s History, andUC Observer (Broadview). I provide editorial services to publishers and individuals. Those services include ghost writing, for projects that have included a major global brand, a leading figure in Canadian business, one of the world’s top consulting companies, and a leading global cybersecurity firm. I also work as an illustrator and a graphic designer. In my spare time, I’m a landscape artist. I also maintain the website Wild Great Lakes, for people who love and defend these freshwater seas.
