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.
