About the Author

My interests — and, consequently, my life — have been nothing if not eclectic. Though I am now mostly retired, I have been, at various times, a senior corporate executive, university professor, award-winning public speaker, professional entertainer, software engineer, product/technology evangelist, bestselling author, and more. I've lived in three countries — Canada (Hamilton, Burlington, Niagara Falls, Ottawa, Waterloo, Vancouver, Gibsons); England (Cambridge); and the United States (New York City, San Francisco) — and visited dozens of others. I have travelled literally millions of miles, by airplane, train, boat (ocean liners, cruise ships, ferries, small offshore sailboats, canoes), coach, tram, gondola, automobile, motorcycle, bicycle, horse, and dog sled. And for most of those roles, in most of those places, and using most of those vehicles, I've packed a lot of suitcases.

If you find it useful, have questions or suggestions, spot any errors, or just want to say "hello", please feel free to contact me via the feedback page. I'd love to hear about what may have led you here, especially any newspaper/magazine articles, or radio/TV pieces, as I often have no other way to learn about such mentions. Plus, I meet a lot of nice people this way!

A photon checks into a hotel, and the bellhop asks him if he has any luggage.
"No", replies the photon, "I'm travelling light."
