Hi everyone,

As you may know, in addition to my work in the public as The Germ Guy, I’m also a member of the staff at the University of Ottawa and for years, have been granted the association with the institution as a member of their media experts.

Well, all good things must come to an end.

Due to some internal directives, I’ve been asked to disassociate myself from the University in the public.  The reasons don’t need to be discussed here but for the future, anything that you see here or any of my other contributions in the media will no longer have any link back to the University of Ottawa.

That being said, I also have some very good news to share!

Over the coming months, you’ll be seeing more of The Germ Guy as several new opportunities have come my way.  It’s still too early to talk about them but when they are made official, you’ll be the first ones to know!


As many of you know, I’ve been working on a book with DoubleDay in Canada and I’m happy to say that we have a title and a release date.  It’s still months away but come October 2013, you’ll be seeing The Germ Code in your local bookstore.  It’s been a fantastic experience and I am happy to say that the book will make a great addition to any home.

So, next year promises to be a fantastic one and I’m sure that it will surely make 2013: The Year of Germs – but more on that later.

Would love to hear your comments…
