Biography

I enjoy writing. I don’t do it all the time, but when I get inspiration it is an activity that brings me immense satisfaction.

I enjoy writing comedy the most. I can hear the comical voices of the characters in my mind and hope that readers can recreate this experience in their own mind, when they read my words.

Although I work in the field of mapping and GIS, I am also passionate about writing interesting and informative documentation, instructions and user manuals. This is where I have done most of my written work and, in many cases, have been paid for it.

The works I publish have been sitting on my computer for years. Fortunately, the Internet provides an opportunity to distribute manuscripts to anyone who may be interested.

I hope a few people will discover some gems in my work.
