I am a retired engineer who enjoys traveling and writing. I write mostly about my travels but also about socio-political and economic issues (Life in the Rear-view Mirror; Climate Change: What Does it Mean?; Why Are We Killing Mother Earth?; Humanity's Folly; The Crazy Apes: A Satire of Human Society). My books are meant to enlighten and stimulate the mind. Although I don't shy away from using humour, I don't write to entertain.
I live in Toronto, Canada and vacation mostly in South America during the winter, exploring the Andes and their ancient cultures. History and anthropology fascinate me.
I like traveling with a backpack: I did the Camino de Santiago, in Northern Spain, the Inka Trail in Peru, the Tyrona National Park in Colombia, the Uyuni Salt Flats in Bolivia, Volcano Avenue in Ecuador, and the spectacularly colourful canyons of northwest Argentina.
