I am a lyricist, poet, retired event planner, Scottish Rite Mason (Barrie Consistory) and Khartum Shrine Noble in good standing. After many years of event planning of Shrine Circuses, NHL Oldtimers Hockey Challenge games, Illusions Magic & Miracles and others I retired November 3, 2010 to pursue my own dreams rather than facilitating the dreams of others. Writing and the arts are where my heart resides.
