Some day, I’ll write a book - my story. How often have you felt or heard this sentiment ? How often have you seen the written word ?
Andre’s story begins in London, Ontario Canada in 1946. His mother was an English war bride and his father a Canadian soldier. Raised as an “army brat”, he never intended to join the military. That he did, rising to the rank of Major, following which he worked in the Federal Government, having national and international responsibilities. Ever wanting, though admittedly internally afraid, the challenge of the private sector, he went on to turn around the fortunes of two high tech companies doing leading edge research, development and manufacturing. Each sold into markets in about 70 countries. He was also one of the founders of a computer software company that did not fair well. Along with this professional journey, he had failed marriages and raised two children as a single parent. Each success or failure seemed to open doors to new experiences, sometimes pleasant and sometimes painful. At age 63, he gave away most of his belongings and sought adventure in South America. His current life is revealed through his writing and photography on this website, www.andrehugosplace.com/
