DJ (is actually my first and middle initial but (came about because of one pair of shoes I used to wear to class) is a name my students used as a nickname. My first name is Douglas but it was not one that I wished to continue using due to some connotations it had for me. I tried other nicknames but DJ has stuck and most of my friends use that now.
I was born in Ottawa in 1943 and have lived in Riverside (9 years), Amherstburg (9 years), London England (1 year), Edmonton (3 years), Kitchener (5 years), Waterloo (26 years), St Louis MO. (1 year), and Toronto (6 years plus).
