Now, he happily contributes to the ever-evolving landscape of journalism in Northern Ontario through Canada's LJI program and swears he is going to complete that novel he's been working on.

He currently resides on the Fort William side of Thunder Bay with his partner and their adopted cat (see: furry dependent), Tux.
