About the Author
Born in Calgary, Alberta (Canada), Gary moved west to B.C.at the very early age of 2, where he spent most of his formative years - aside from a 6 year stint where he learned to appreciate living in avery small town of 800people. He then attended high school in Surrey,B.C. and went on to graduate from Simon Fraser University (BC, Canada)in 1989 with a major in Computing science and a minor in English - anodd but useful mix (a techie who can write clearly)!
Gary wastricked into becoming a Project Manager by his first manager, and hasnever looked back. His international experience includes projects inNew Zealand, Taiwan, Hong Kong, the US and Canada, working on projectsin the Telecom, Student Information Systems, Local Government andHealthcare sectors.
Having wanted to write books since highschool, it took many long years of successful procrastination until hefinally felt he had something useful to write about - and wrote hisfirst book of stories in 2012...on Project Management, of all things.Next, presented with the terrifying challenge of writing for children,he enlisted his youngest sons to be the first victims (reviewers andeditors) and the Project Kids series of books were born. Several yearson, he is amazed to see the books being translated into multiplelanguages, and reaching into schools and homes around the world.
Gary currently lives in New Zealand with his wife, three sons and two cats, and is loving every bit of it.
