I am a writer and university lecturer living in the Middle East, India and Japan. I have written with, and for, the Canadian cult comedy phenomenon The Kids In The Hall, developed feature productions with former Saturday Night Live staff writer (and "Anchorman" director) Adam Mackay and feature film writer Bruce McCulloch, and story-edited countless feature films. It is my goal to perpetuate the memory of the late Ivan Von Noshrilgram, Sr., celebrated philosopher botanist, wild game hunter, exotic animal translator, humanist lecturer, extinguished fire walker, writer and linguist.
