About my writing

I’ve been writing long, complex emails, much to the consternation of my coworkers for several years. Prior to writing On Swift Wings, I hadn’t written anything substantial in a non-academic or professional capacity. My writing is inspired by classic authors like Jonathan Swift, Leo Tolstoy, Charles Dickens, etc.

I have a dry, sarcastic sense of humour that tends to manifest itself in the satirical content of my writing. I really hope that you enjoy it, but I also enjoy hearing constructive ideas for ways upon which I can expand in the future.

About my not writing

In my non-spare time, I am a data scientist, and father of two.

In my extra-spare time I enjoy playing most sports, particularly soccer, hockey, and volleyball and watching the Flames, Stampeders, Roughnecks, Red Devils, Hitmen, Cavalry, etc.
