My Occupation musician/painter/purebred dog breeder
My Bio I've been a songwriter since 1981 - and a fairly good songwriter since about 1991. I've been in bands (Lowest of the Low, The Rusty Nails, The Do Good Assassins), and played solo. I've toured all over Canada, the U.S., England, China and Australia.
I'm also a painter (since 2001).
The dog breeder thing is actually not true.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
song lyrics... or dog breeding.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Alice Neel, Jenny Saville, Kris Knight, Stewart Jones, David Foster Wallace, Jonathan Safran Foer... and any other author with three names.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by JSF.
Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace (DFW)
