Freelance writer in the Toronto area.
From when I was a young lad, I started off as a listener. I was told stories, and taught lessons from teachers, parents, and my favourite authors. When I grew up into a precocious young adult, I began to tell stories of my own.
The watershed moment came when I realized that listening and recounting were the inseparable art of observing the world, and giving a narrative to a moment in time, brief or otherwise. Now I write.
