It seems awfully self-indulgent to write about oneself — but I should give you a bit of an idea about the person behind these words. I’m English by birth, but Canadian now for over 25 years. My academic background is in Philosophy (I have Ph.D. from the University of Western Ontario, my specialization was ethics and bioethics) and I have worked as an ethicist in health care, and sport for about 20 years. My clients are health care facilities, hospitals, long term care facilities, health regions, home care providers and so on, throughout Ontario and as far afield as northern BC. On the sport side I have worked with the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (and its predecessor) for close to 20 years. I’m based in London Ontario.
