"What I like about what I do is that despite the frustrations and risks of self-employment, I am engaged on a daily basis in activities and concerns that matter to me. I have, I tell myself, control over my own working life and if I feel like it's getting out of control I'm in a position to change that."

Born in Providence, Rhode Island and has lived in Markhamville, NB since 1973.
