Who is This Gentleman?

Alexander is a Montreal-based writer, editor and researcher (often in that order). He teaches undergraduate courses at Concordia University and is working to (finally) complete his Ph.D. in the Department of Religions and Cultures.

He mostly survives off tofu, instant ramen and bok choi, and pays for these bad dietary habits by writing copy for sales teams and stringing together technical nitty-gritty for software developers and startups. Other than that, he edits the JRC, a peer-reviewed academic publication and spends all his free time writing fiction (and occasionally selling some, too).

He’s enamored with the Chicago Manual of Style, there’s been confirmed sightings of Strunk & White’s The Elements of Style in his bed chambers, and he has an odd fondness for certain Saints and felines.
