Caz Zyvatkauskas


In the early 1960s my family immigrated to Canada via England. Both my parents were native born Lithuanians who lived through the Second World War. As a teenager in Scarborough, Ontario, I worked in a plastic factory. Following that I was fortunate enough to spend many years in the editorial departments of The Globe and Mail and The Toronto Sun. Recently I took early retirement from the University of Toronto where I worked for 25 years in the communications department. I live in Gresham, Oregon with my husband.
