About me

Andrew Snowdon… yeah… about that guy.

I don’t know. What do you want to know?

I’m a thirty-something freelance writer, online theatre reviewer, and will pretty much do anything that involves writing or editing if the compensation will help pay the bills.

In short, I’m a mercenary hack.

It wasn’t always like this.

When I was in high school, I worked for Nortel (then called Bell-Northern Research) maintaining Pascal code for test equipment. After high school, I went to college and learned to cook. Naturally, I then went to work for a market research company doing telephone surveys. Because of my profound personal phobia of telephones, I got another job in a call-centre providing support for a retail consumer credit card. I did credit lending (ruined Christmas), fraud investigation (ended up in court), some supervisory work, lots of scheduling, a bit of IT support, and some programming. The culture started to change after an American bank bought the operation, and I burned out.

That’s the short version.

I’m on Twitter, I’m on Facebook, I’m on Google Calendar, I’ve written for Ottawa Tonite, Macgasm, and Apartment 613. Probably, if you look hard enough, you can find other things.

I am working on several novels, a few plays, and almost no poetry. I don’t talk about personal projects in detail before they’re completed. It’s a family superstition. I am actually more likely to lie than tell the truth on the subject. This is not the only way in which I am weird.

Is that enough? Do you have enough? Can I go now?

  1. Hey
    Nice meeting you at Magnetic North.

    I see you live in Nepean, maybe I can bum a ride off you since I live in the westend of Nepean 😛
