I’m a journalist, author, and editor – more concisely, a writer – in Toronto. I have a huge portfolio of published newspaper and magazine articles. I literally wrote the book on Web accessibility for people with disabilities, plus a second book on Canadian English. (Books №s 3 & 4 are underway.)
I go back more than 30 years in typography ﹠ graphic design.
If you have a difficult nonfiction manuscript, you should scrape the money together to hire me to edit it, since nobody is better than me at severe technical editing.
I run several self-directed projects. One activity of note involved my reading all the published literature on gay and lesbian incomes and earnings. In 2018, I published the Vegan Lifter Project after a good deal of research.
I’ve done paid research into usability and accessibility, and have written audio-description scripts. In many cases, I am the sole, or sole remaining, expert on a number of topics, like captioning.
I’ve lectured internationally since 1989.
For most if not all of the above practice areas, my work has concluded as of November 2021. Of course I will keep all relevant documentation online indefinitely.
I have contributed a number of compilations to the Internet Archive, where one hopes they will be safe for the indefinite future.
A stickler, I write valid HTML with good type and copy. (In fact, I wrote a guide for other journalists on producing clean copy.) I’m happy to publish these documents for readers’ enjoyment and elucidation.
