Stories, Poems and Musings
from a
Curious Mind

Welcome to my website! If you’re a curious sort, you’ve landed on the right page. Because so am I!

For those who followed my previous blog, “Trace of Whimsy,” what you’ve stumbled across here is its sequel—an evolution of sorts. I’m stoked to once again share my writing, insights, humour, and take-on-things-in-general with you through my blog—and more.

And to new curiosity-seekers, welcome!

Writer. Storyteller. Poet.

So, what’s different or new?

Call Me Curious captures my new, expanded approach to creative expression. A medley of stories—humorous, provocative and polemic—is what you can continue to expect with my blog. Check out some of my older blogs, too—my favourites and reader-faves.

I’ve been pursuing other forms of writing and expression from poetry to children’s books and lyrics.

Curious? If so, I invite you to take a few moments to browse through the pages on my site.

The snake whisperer: one man’s story of recovery and respect

At age 18, Phil was a drug addict. He was homeless, depressed and suicidal. A little snake gave him something to live for. Phil, now 31, and his wife live north of Montreal. They share their home with two dogs and a few fish. Oh, and three snakes: a 20-year-old...
