John W Egan


Ontario and Quebec shaped my early life. My first full-time job was working in the stockroom of a department store while I was a full-time student in my first year at university; it worked out somehow. I have studied at four universities in three countries, earning degrees in History and Adult Education. My experience includes having served in the Logistics, Armour, and Training Development professions, the armies of Canada and Sierra Leone, and a war in West Africa. My adopted hometown is Ottawa, Canada.
