Before becoming a published author I also worked in film. Some of the films I worked on are listed in my filmography on the Internet Movie Database: IMDb. I studied acting at Toronto's New School of Drama, and went through the improvisation program at Toronto's legendary Second City. I was also a member of LIFT (Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto), and did a feature interview, entitled Sounds Good, for their newsletter, with Genie award-winning sound engineer, Daniel Pellerin (The Sweet Hereafter, American Psycho).
While my post secondary diploma is in Radio Broadcasting, I also took a year of television—at Loyalist College of Applied Arts and Technology—and a year and a half of film at Humber College (where I also took classes in abnormal psychology and short fiction), in Toronto, before moving to Northern Ireland where I got his first job in film, on the feature Divorcing Jack (directed by David Caffrey; written by Colin Bateman; staring David Thewlis) as a Driver/Assistant Director Trainee. While at Humber he made an end of first year student short film, Forgiveness, staring CBC reporter, Tim Duboyce.
