Ned lived in Toronto for many years and took what he needed (a degree from U of T as well as editing, publishing and communications experience) but left behind what he didn’t need (crowds, gridlock). In 2007, Ned moved back home to the Blue Mountains region of Ontario. He is a seasoned editor and copywriter with experience on staff at the University of Toronto Press and at Kids Can Press. His writing has been published in Canadian Geographic, National Post, Canoeroots, Crosscurrents and elsewhere. When not working in his home office, Ned can be found taking notes and pictures while hiking, biking, skiing or snowshoeing through the woods.
