I was born sometime after winter ended and before spring began, in 1971, at a little hospital in the village of Sainte Anne de Kent, New Brunswick, Canada. My natural mother was a 14 year-old full-blooded Mic Mac First Nations citizen, my father a 17 year-old Acadien. I was placed for adoption, with a pseudonym of Etienne, my fourth of seven names, and was soon adopted by a couple of newlyweds, who were in their late 30s, who had no idea what they'd signed up for.

Twenty years ago, I left the isolated northern New Brunswick town of Dalhousie, to spend six years in Halifax, two years in Michigan, eight years in California, a year hopping around eastern Canada, a year in Toronto, and the last two and a half, taking a breather from the epic amount of living I'd crammed into the 18 years I was away, to compensate perhaps for the utter boredom I experienced in my first 18 years.

I've joined iComp more as an enthusiastic appreciator of the site and the works of the amazing people who have made this site as appealing as it is.

Thank you, everyone.
