Government lawyer in Gatineau, Quebec. I practice international law, including intellectual property and trade, and have taught both IP and antitrust law.

Been rooting for the Steelers since '94, but a fan since 1978 (got temporarily caught up in the Al Davis Freak Show in between).

Celebrated my 40th birthday at Heinz Field in 2006 with five buddies who traveled the 12 hours with me from MTL. Unfortunately, the Broncos beat us up that day. Still the 2nd best birthday I ever had (first was finding out I was going to be a father). Came back in 2013, but unfortunately, the Pirates game was better - Never thought I'd write these words.

Married, unfortunately to a Packer fan, and a son (born in 2002, for now a Jags fan, but haven't given up on him).

As for my screen name, I came up with it a few years back as a Fantasy Team name (All my fantasy teams have Steelers links – e.g. Big Ben Bike Helmets), and it stuck.

Not only does it fit no. 43 really well (ask the Tennessee Titans), but it’s also a name play with the Flying Wallendas of lore.
