I’m a writer and digital strategist living in Calgary, Alberta. I like to read Superman comics, watch Blue Jays games and listen to the Pixies. I’m obsessive about stationery, especially pens and notebooks. I have two sons and one wife.
I pay my mortgage as the planning and strategy director at AppColony
. Previously, I was a copywriter and content analyst at three agencies, working with clients like Dell, Mercedes-Benz, NASA, Budweiser, Best Buy, Nissan, Adidas, Travel Alberta and Moxie’s. I also spent nearly two years as the senior writer and social media guy at iStockphoto.
I moonlight as a contributing editor with Avenue
and columnist with THIS
, writing mostly about technology and culture.
From the late 90's until a few years ago, I was a DJ, including seven years of playing Friday nights at the Warehouse Nightclub in Calgary. My hearing is no longer very good.
I’m currently writing a novel about hockey. It’s taking me a long time to finish.
