About

As you can probably tell from my writing, I have a variety of perspectives on life: many of them are complimentary. I’ve learned a lot over the last few decades. I’ve studied math, science and computers at the University of Waterloo. I’ve degrees in Pastoral Studies from Moody Bible Institute, and a Masters in Geography from Penn State. I was rodeo director for a gay rodeo in Little Rock, Arkansas, and while there I helped fight the Arkansas Marriage Amendment. I was in a car accident in 2001 and a coma for six weeks; I am a traumatic brain injury survivor. I currently live in Toronto, where I work for the Ontario Ministry of Labour. I am the Chair for the Communications Committee for the Brain Injury Society of Toronto, and the Coordinator for the Speakers’ Bureau for the Ontario Pride Network. I speak regularly about my experiences in the queer communities in both Arkansas and Ontario.

It should be noted that although I’ve been involved in leadership of several organizations, at several levels, the viewpoints expressed on this site are solely and only my own. I take complete responsibility for what is said. Specifically: right now I’m working for the Ministry of Labour and the Ontario Pride Network. In no way should this blog be thought to reflect, in any way, the government of Ontario’s positions or directions.

    Ian, I’d love to chat with you. I believe we think along the same lines and might have mutual interests that should be explored. Please, send me your phone# or email so I can send you mine so we can connect. I too am a Moody grad — exactly 25 years before you. Can we talk?
