WORK HISTORY

Until fairly recently, I had been a socially progressive writer on careers and the workplace (since the late 90’s). Had a bi-weekly column in the Toronto Star early to mid-2000’s called Career Activist. Several books published beginning 1997. Before that a sessional professor of Communications at Ryerson University for a few years. Managed a small government department in Ministry of Education for a couple of years prior. Worked first in the corporate world, marketing, for over a decade.

EDUCATION

I value learning in all its forms. Regarding formal education, I have earned two graduate degrees from highly regarded schools in Canada: a Masters in Education (M.Ed.) from University of Toronto/OISE, and an MBA from what is now the Schulich School of Business at York University.
