About Me

I earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Theatre (Directing) from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC, and a Bachelor of Arts (Political Science) from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

My plays have been developed, workshopped, and performed in Toronto, Canada. I was Playwright in Residence at Factory Theatre in 1999/2000 and a member of Factory Theatre’s Playwrights Lab in 1998/99.

My articles have been published in The Globe and Mail and The Toronto Star newspapers.

I wrote a popular fitness blog from 2011 to 2014 posting stories, articles, and in-depth interviews with athletes from the worlds of competitive powerlifting, bodybuilding, boxing, and other sports.

My current blog explores themes of survival, perspective, and tolerance.

I worked for many years as a law clerk.

I live in Toronto where I raised my son, Will French.

P.S. I use a lot of images of space and the planets from NASA on my site. NASA allows this, as follows:
