Growing up in Hamilton, Ontario, my love of drawing was, I thought, going to lead to a career as an artist. Instead, I became a graphic designer and employed my own illustration and photography when the client couldn’t afford an outside source. Similarly, I began writing copy when I realized that all creative is a conversation or story that unfolds first in the storyteller’s mind. Put simply, we all live in stories; they can become images and deeds, as well as words.

It was in transcribing the vivid dreams that occurred over an eight or nine month span that the character MacNeice, and the initial crime of  “Erasing Memory” emerged.
