 About Self
I was born in New Westminster, B. C. Canada and raised and educated in Port Coquitlam, B. C. Canada. I have spent most of my adult life working in the travel industry, first as a Travel Consultant, then with a major Canadian airline and retired in October 14, 2005. Prior to my career in travel, I attended Bible College, played trumpet, both solo and in amateur groups, and preached whenever asked. Since retirement I have tried a few different jobs, just trying to find out what I want to be when 'I grow up'. I have worked in a funeral home and crematorium, front desk at a hotel, dispatcher for a moving company and projectionist at a theatre. I am now back working in a funeral home again. I think this is what I always wanted to do when I grew up. It was in February, 2004, when I wrote my first poem, as an Anniversary card for my wife, Linda. Being rather pleased by the results of my first attempt, I wrote a second one, then another and another. I soon realized that I was in love with words and I know that, if used properly, they can paint a picture as well as any artist. The pictures that my words paint may not always be pretty, but I hope they are pictures worth viewing, for I write about what I see in the world around me, whether it be good, bad or otherwise. I also write what I feel; about family, nature, God and faith. I have even attempted to write a few Children's poems. My greatest joy is when someone who has read some of my 'stuff' sends me an email and tells me what they think. I appreciate the good comments and accept the constructive criticism. I pray the words keep coming and you keep reading. I make my home in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies with my wife Linda and spoiled pup, Tiki.
