Hello. Bonjour. Guten Abend. Buongiorno. 你好.

When I was younger, much younger, my relatives would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I would always answer that I wanted to be a writer. I didn’t know if being an writer meant writing the next great Canadian novel, journalistic articles or even the jiggles in TV commercials.  Either way, my relatives laughed at my answer and told me to stop being silly.

As the years went by, the aspirations to be a writer dissolved. Instead, I set out on a path anchored by the subjects that are considered by society to be the leading opportunities for employment. In the last few years I have written countless papers and reports examining subjects from the rise in consumerism in China in the post-Mao era to the cultural aspects of a multinational company’s region specific ad to the similarities of two of the largest forest fire catastrophic failures of all time. But it wasn’t until a business writing course and a business design course that I realized I have the desire to share the crazy in my mind and that writing is my preferred medium to enhance creativity.

I am now rebranding a blog I started many years that I had frequented at irregular intervals. I am now on a mission to create, share, and discover. Join me on this journey to become a writer and spark conversation.
