By day he spins stories with words and pictures as an advertising copywriter and creative director. But by the light of the moon, he can be found weaving tales for sound and screen, and alchemizing bubbly brews with hops and barley.
He lives in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada with his wife, son and a menagerie of small creatures. Discover more about Drew at www.idrewthis.ca.
