“I graduated from the University of Windsor as a Fine Arts/English major way back in 1980, just a few years before Huey Lewis and the News revealed how Hip it was to be Square and cell phones were almost as big as a breadbox. Like most aspiring artists I made the trek to Toronto with my portfolio under my arm and like most aspiring artists I returned home. I discovered that I had a knack for teaching so I got my degree in education and spent five years teaching English at a French school in the town of Tecumseh which would have been much easier if I had spoken French. For some reason I also discovered that I had a knack for selling shoes. That led to many years in the retail footwear business where I became much too familiar with all the feet in wonderful Windsor.”
