I am a Montreal-based artist-historian. I work as a film director, author and translator of literary works, while keeping a foot in the university world. After an MA and PhD in the History and Philosophy of Science from McGill University and a postgraduate year in Medical Sciences at Oxford University, plus two years teaching at the State University of New York, I spent seven years developing courses and teaching at Athabasca University.
I have worked for TV, radio, news magazines and newspapers, in both English and French, reporting first-hand on nature, climate change, disappearances, refugees, hostages, terrorists, aboriginal societies, desert nomads, slaves, spiritual leaders, Nobel-winning scientists, inventors, criminal trials and heads of government on six continents. Over the years, I must have interviewed more than 10,000 people. Each person has a story to relate…
Anyway, here’s to hoping life is smiling upon you! Drop me a line when you have a chance!
Best, George Tombs
