My wife is a well known French Canadian visual artist whose work is in the National Gallery of Canada, Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ), Museum of Modern Art (NYC), Newberry Library (Chicago), and hundreds of museums, galleries, and private collections. Louise works in the genre of artists' books (books that are art pieces).
I spent 35+ years in business as an entrepreneur, manager, and executive in the management and systems consulting field. At the age of 50, I was invited into McGill University (Montreal, QC), to undertake my PhD. I graduated 7 years later with a PhD in Knowledge Management. [Yes--seven years! I was getting old and slow back then!]
I have facilitated knowledge acquisition for learners (students) through my undergraduate, graduate and PhD courses in business schools and library and information science schools. I am a disruptive educator who uses Game-Based Learning as an educational technique for learning.
Originally from the Ottawa, ON--Gatineau, QC region of Canada, we have been living and working in the USA for the last 15 years. We recently chose to sell our home in Boise, ID, and become full-time RVers with our small tear drop trailer, a 12-ft. Littleguy T@B.
We enjoy learning from others about their journies with RVing.
No pets. Our Sheltie departed last December.

Small tear drop trailer, a 12-ft. Littleguy T@B. One year old. No slide outs.
I hosted Michael and Louise for four days in December. Both are great conversationalist , he from academia, and Louise's art is beautiful, unique and intelligent. She gave me a gift sample of her creativity. I was sad to see them leave in their little teardrop trailer. They are most welcome to return anytime.
M & L were perfect guests...they communicated their arrival and departure times well, left the site in perfect condition and were friendly, but not imposing :-). We were midst of the chaos of "home maintenance mode" ... plumbers and pest control knocking on the door and milling around the house inside and out, contractors texting and calling, etc., When they rang the doorbell to say goodbye, we took a much-needed breather and invited them in for a cup of coffee. I'm so glad we hit the pause button long enough to learn more about this interesting couple! I feel like we have new friends! I/we hated to see them go, but will remember them fondly each time we look at the unique and lovely gift they left with us. It so happened to be perfect for my and my partners interests. If ever you have occasion to host M & L, I am sure you will find them as lovely as we do/did!
