was born in 1955 in the province of Nova Scotia which is on the
east coast of Canada. He graduated from high school and took a
two year diploma course in Radio & Television Arts at
Confederation College in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.
After graduating from college, he was employed by CKPR / CFRD
television in Thunder Bay for 3 1/2 years in their videotape and
master control operations. In 1977 he obtained employment in
Ottawa, Ontario (Canada) and has been employed at a broadcasting
station there since then. Up until 1998 he was working in the
videotape and master control center. Most of the computer
software used in those locations during the later portion of
that time was written by him.
Since 1998 he has been involved with news editing and live
newscast playout co-ordination. He's written two manuals on the
video server and automation system that was introduced and
installed in 2000 and those manuals have now been forwarded and
in use at several locations in Canada as well as several places
in the United States. He holds an amateur radio certificate.
Donald's father was a WWII veteran and had worked for the Nova
Scotia power company in his earlier years following the war, in
his later years he ran a poultry warehouse.
Donald is married and has 3 children.
Donald is mostly self-taught, and understands most all
electrical wiring procedures in the context of a residential
setting. There are very few things that he can't wire. He has
done most of his own automobile repairs including replacing a
rack and pinion steering which as a DIY'er saved him a lot of
money, although mobility issues in recent years makes that more
difficult now. Drawing on that knowledge he joined up with
another person to previously co-author self help home
improvement websites which become one of the most popular
websites on the web.
Up to his mid twenties he was as able bodied as anyone. Since
the start of the 1980's have experienced a gradually decreasing
in mobility / walking ability that has slowly degraded over the
last 30 years. Today he has limited walking ability, and use a
cane / wheelchair and scooter to get around.
He enjoys travel and in 2010 founded 'Travel with a Disability'
in hopes that it will too become the one stop website for
information for the disabled traveler that would be from a
disabled person's perspective.
In 2012 he retired from a almost 38 year career in the operation
side of television broadcasting.
