I am a published writer, author of two screenplays, workshop facilitator, counsellor/life coach, and outdoor enthusiast living in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
I have just completed my first novel, “Bi, Hung, Fit… and Married“, which is the story of a man coming to terms with his bisexuality within the confines of marriage and fatherhood. The vast majority of married bisexual men are deep within the closet. I hope that my book will help them, and others, to take the first small steps toward accepting their unique, and quite enjoyable form of sexual preference, which is to say, the preference for sleeping with everyone!
Bisexuality is a queer thing indeed, as I’ve discovered since I began experimenting with it at the age of 13. Once out to my friends and family, I started to talk to my fellow bisexuals in earnest, gaining a perspective on married male bisexuality which could only be acquired from an insider. I see bisexuals for one on one counselling, run workshops on sexuality, bisexuality, and other topics, and started and run the Meetup group Bisexuals in Vancouver.
I am still happily married and very much in love with my incredible wife (or non-wife, partner, significant other) of 18 years. We live together with our two teenaged progeny.
I’m a multi-faceted communications professional with over 25 years of diverse writing experience. After completing my BA in Creative Writing/Journalism at Concordia University, in Montreal, I worked on both sides of the mic at CBC Radio, as well as freelanced for a variety of well-known publications, such as the Montreal Gazette and the Vancouver Courier.
I have written two feature-length screenplays, “When I Find You” and “Webs of Hidden Desire”, both of which received Telefilm Canada and BC Film funding. Both of these films explore themes of sexuality and sexual identity confusion, my favourite topics! “Webs of Hidden Desire” is currently in search of financing.
Whether I am working in the role of writer, workshop facilitator, life coach, web producer, or teacher, my focus has always been on conveying information to people in ways they will be able to enjoy, absorb, and understand.
I’ve had articles and photographs published across the continent in a variety of publications, including the Montreal Gazette, the Vancouver Courier, the Vancouver Board of Trade, Moviemaker Magazine, the Royal Bank, the NFB, Reader’s Digest, and others.
