Hi! I'm Mike!

I'm a problem solver, product manager, software designer, erstwhile teacher, occasional dreamer, full time pragmatist, and stalwart Canadian. I've been reading since I was a wee lad, and used to write some truly awful poetry when I was younger. Never tried my hand at writing stories, but I've always bounced a few ideas around in my head and love thinking about them.

I'm a fan of fiction and non-fiction alike, leaning towards historical fiction, science fiction and sociology / psychology in terms of preferences, but I'll read anything good. I usually have a periodical on my coffee table, a book on my Kindle and a Wattpad story on my iPhone.

I live in Toronto, Canada with my wife, daughter, son and cat.
