Welcome to my blog. My name is Bryan, and I’m a writer. Not aspiring. Not wannabe. A writer. I’m taking control of how I see myself, and who I want to be.
I want to write, and by extension, I guess that means I want to be read. So, thanks for stopping by and checking this out. Hopefully you’ll find something worthwhile.
My main interest at the moment is finding that real to ideal life balance. I am on the verge of a major life change, and trying to rediscover the parts of me that have been in sleep mode for far too many years. I also love travel, reading, gadgets, and driving cardboard cars.
I lived in Dubai for five years starting in 2008, and before that I lived in China for seven years. During my twelve years overseas, I worked primarily as an English literature teacher at various international schools. In the summer of 2013, I returned to Canada to switch gears – new (old) country, new career, new start. Scary and thrilling in a rollercoaster or horror movie kind of way. My heart is racing, my mouth is dry, and I am strangely disorientated.
Most importantly, I am a single dad with a thirteen year old son. And yes, those things will likely provide a lot of inspiration for what I write here.
