Others say: “Chezz”, “Chess”, or “Chaise”.
No matter how you pronounce it I am a young reader, writer, and thinker, with a passion for books, music and ideas.
Originally, I grew up on a chicken farm in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. In my three decades on this earth I have lived in Vancouver, travelled Europe, and worked in Australia.
In 2003 I received a bachelor of arts, majoring in Sociology, from the University of British Columbia. In September, 2010, I will be commencing the Master of Publishing program at Simon Fraser University.
I have worked in the publishing industry, as en editor and writer, since 2006. From 2006-09, I was a committee member at Catchfire Press. Today, I contribute to Reverb magazine, a music magazine based in Australia.
I also co-host a weekly radio show, called the Chez and Stallion Show.
My personal philosophy is this: “You have nobody to impress but yourself.”
And that’s about all you need to know about me, for now…
