TL;DR The short story version is: I have made it through a lot of obstacles to get here. As the world dismantled the oil sands in Canada, I watched my career crumble. For years I jumped from company to company and watched as thousands were laid off, wages were repeatedly cut, and eventually the jobs dried up. I could have sold all my stuff and easily emigrated to another country where they still value their talent, but I’m full of “I’ll f**king show you” attitude and I’m going to try something different. I am going to try the Creator route and see what I can make of it.
