I spent more than twenty years as a software developer and technology entrepreneur. Like most people today, I focused a lot of energy on figuring out how to solve business problems. Somewhere in the back of my mind, a voice kept asking me, “Why am I doing this in the first place?”
In the summer of 2010 my wife, Sheila, and I rented out our house, moved into a camper van and took our two kids on an extended trip around North America — the first great adventure in what would be an exciting and tumultuous chapter for our family. We have since sold the software company I co-founded, downsized from a house to a townhouse, sold our camper van and our car, and embarked on a completely new lifestyle.
These days, I spend as much time as possible writing and hanging out with our homeschooled/unschooled kids — a 14-year-old daughter and a 12-year-old son. I also run a co-working space (fuseworkhub.ca), sit on the board of the Coast Car Co-op, and provide book design and consultation to independent authors.
I created this website as an outlet for creativity — a place to let out “creative steam” — and as a platform to further my writing. I published my debut novel, Goodnight Sunshine, in 2015, and expect to publish my second novel, 17 Weddings, in the fall of 2017.
