about me
I'm a software developer, writer, bridge player, and military historian currently living in Ottawa Canada. Writing is a hobby, and I like to write novels, screenplays, and military history books. Bridge is a great pastime, and I play tournament bridge when I can and watch online bridge while doing other work or writing on my computer. I also write about bridge, and many articles and a former blog can be found at My military history site can be found at
