I’ve been interested in oil paintings since six years old.  At the dark landing on top of the stairs of my after school care takers home was a painting of the Four Horses of The Apocalypse. It was totally sublime, and burned into my brain forever.  I believed in the mystery and power of that image.  I believed it had something to say about my life. I studied figurative oil painting in 2012 and began making my own compositions.

I began writing creative non-fiction in 2013. I like the freedom and constraints that come with the format, and I love words.  I draw from my own experience of work and relationships as a thirty something Caucasian male living and working in Canada. I also write articles on spirituality, personal growth and topics in psychology.
