High-school local newspaper column gigs provided on-the-job training by journalism Pro's. Propelled into the explosion of creativity swirling in the underground anti-authoritarian rebellion fermenting in the drab capitalist underbelly of the rigid Toronto core, my abilities challenged - my creativity evolved. Jobs evolved into gigs, employment into contracts.
Projects and activities under my own label required wearing many hats, with writing always part of the mix. Commercial Journalism merged with creative writing and I created an idealistic newspaper to support non-profit goals, the Trib-Une (One Tribe), edited a specialty magazine for a client whose goal was to profit by selling ads by writing and publishing the stories of their advertisers.
Business contracts demanded top quality writing, translation, editing, re-write, which supported the other unpaid writing world of helping friends, family, colleagues, people in trouble to tell their stories. Documenting for the Court, details of events leading to criminal charges against a victim of violence charged with murder, resulted in the exoneration of that client. Writing the harrowing escape story of an Iranian family appealing deportation: Maryam's Story, assisted her family to gain refugee status in Canada.
While evolving over the years in many types of scribery, the value of my skill escaped me as it was simply part of everything I did - like breathing.
Please read my review (attached) of an unusual and quite wonderful 2005 concert.
My education mixes traditional University and College programs in the humanities, social sciences, and creative arts with prolific self-motivated studies in a myriad of areas - esoteric and exoteric - all tempered by in-house business, publishing, marketing, PR, software and hardware sales and skills training - developed by down-to-earth practical experience in the lot.
Willing to fine-tune and polish, re-write or ghost-write, both fiction and non-fiction of a high minded, positive nature crucial to the attainment of serious, beneficial goals.
Exciting projects inspire me and motivate flexibility.
