I am in Canada, and at various airports here and there.


World Headquarters

When I am not traveling I am working out of my home office (yippee!) in leafy Burlington, Ontario. The Lake Ontario shoreline is at the end of my short street, and I could see the waves rolling if it wasn’t for a big damn starter castle blocking the view. I am anywhere from 35 minutes to 90 minutes drive in to downtown Toronto (ugly traffic).

I fly out of Buffalo quite a bit, since the airport is only 75 minutes from my door and Toronto’s Pearson Airport can be stupid-expensive to fly out of, because of high landing fees.

The best way to get me, by far, is e-mail. I am pretty terrible at responding to voice mails.

I Skype. I Tweet. I have a bazillion Linkedin contacts. I look at Facebook once a year, when I get birthday messages.

One note: Please don’t send me a friendly note asking if we could get together for a coffee, as you’d like to “pick my brain.” I am a full-time consultant, and my time has to be worth more than a $2 coffee at Tim Horton’s. I love helping people out, and am always happy to meet, but dispensing free advice is a crappy business model and I would like to semi-retire at some point down the road.

Sorry to be blunt, but I have been coached mercilessly by industry friends to put a number to my time.
