I am a graduate of the Alberta College of Art and Design (now Alberta University of the Arts) Bachelor of Fine Arts program. I am also a graduate of the Athabasca University Master of Arts in Integraged Studies (MAIS) program, and a B.Sc.(Eng.) graduate of the University of Alberta.
I've often wondered what became of many of my engineering classmates but I have heard from a few of them. Curtis Sparrow is a businessman and consul for Costa Rica. Brian Zerb is senior project manager for zed.i solutions. "Crazy" Kernighan is taking a long-term vacation in Mexico. Ernie Romanow is a hiking guide in British Columbia. Charles Lang is with Telus. If any of the rest of you are out there, let me know!
Before that, I attended Archbishop O'Leary High School in Edmonton. I've kept in (occasional) touch with Tim Black who is a technical writer, Ihor Gowda who is now a playwright/author and musician manager/agent in Texas, and Dante Scanga who is a doctor in Edmonton.
As you can tell, I love glassblowing. I play hockey year round and have coached soccer.
Lorie is the love of my life. She is a B.Ed. graduate of the University of Alberta and she also attended Archbishop O'Leary High School. She is a retired teacher of English as a Second Language, and enjoys ceramics and gardening. Our two children, David and Lisamarie, live on their own in Calgary.
