Never knew about Pan till I started working with Bill Bobek on Caribana 1999 (now Scotiabank Toronto Caribbean Carnival). Since then, it has become a passion. I even know what it means "when steel talks".
One of my favourites is music teacher, e-pan inventor and pan master Salmon Cupid. He recently took the Toronto All Stars onto TV for CANADA'S GOT TALENT. Salmon helped with the verbage. So here this ... have you ever watched these TV PROGRAMS and thought that STEELPAN could be on a program like this? Well YES. It is happening and I must tell you that TORONTO ALL STARS from TORONTO Canada has been chosen in the LAST 20 SPOTS http://bit.ly/AgRasJ.
Like many other self-employed communicators in Toronto I have a schizophrenic career. On one hand I am an active publicist working on many high profile projects including the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Caribana and the Charles Taylor Prize for Literary Non-Fiction, on the other, as a journalist I have one book published (The Sinking of the Mayflower) under my name and have ghost written two other books. I am the travel editor of Diver Magazine and I write travel stories, cultural stories and housing stories for a number of daily newspapers in Canada. For thirty years I have been researching, watching and writing about the History of Diving in the Movies. In the pages of Diver Magazine and a variety of other publications, my articles have been titled Blood And Bubble movies. I have documented over 3,000 movies dating back to the 19th century that show actors/actresses diving or snorkelng on film. My website, with three seperate Blogs and a photography section represent just three small aspects of my work. email@example.com.
