Soccer writer for the Toronto Star for 32 years, at a time when soccer was on the bottom of the list and nobody wanted to cover it. So I usually had the territory all to myself.
Contributor to several Canadian and U.S. soccer publications also at a time when soccer was an uphill struggle.
Now with soccer having come into prime time attention I am retired from the main stream news media.

Having worn a lot of different hats…both as a freelance Creative Designer and a New Media Specialist at TVOntario for almost 10 years, Jeff has taken on many a project. From web and graphic design, video and audio production, recording engineering, playing in numerous bands, songwriting and illustration and claymation, you name it, he’s done it!
Keeping on top of all of these projects and making sure everything comes together at the finish line is one thing Jeff does best. Never missing a deadline and his ability to juggle projects isn’t something he just picked up from professional experience. It also comes from being a parent of 2 and a foster parent to 43 kids over the years. Jeff has learned to be flexible, adaptable and budget time.
With a passion for bringing out the creativity within all of us, Jeff loves to work hands on, make situations fun and exciting and use the strong communication and interpersonal skills he has to engage people.
