About Gord

I'm a life long resident of Thunder Bay, Ontario, and have made a career out of my passion for the outdoors. Since 1986, I've made my living writing and talking about fishing, hunting, camping, outdoor tourism and resource conservation.

I currently write for the Times Star in Geraldton. My weekly newspaper column Sporting Life and features appeared in the Thunder Bay Chronicle Journal.

Over the past 25 years, I've managed to write roughly a thousand magazine, book and newspaper articles for a range of publications.

I'm the senior editor of Ontario Out of Doors Magazine and am a regular on CBC radio in Northwestern Ontario. The Thursday outdoor column with Lisa Laco on CBC's the Great Northwest is one of the highlights of my week.

Over the years I've been interviewed by many radio and television personalities about the outdoors, including the late Peter Gzowski, of CBC's Morningside. I'm a member of the Outdoor Writers of Canada and have won (as of 2010) 20 national writing awards. I've also received special recognition from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources for educating and informing people about the outdoors.

I have two boys Devin and Austin, with my wife Cheryl. My boys love to fish and hunt and my wife has tangled with many walleye and big BC salmon over the years.

In my spare time I play guitar in two local Thunder Bay bands.
