Al Venslovaitis was born in Alberta shortly after his parents immigrated from war-torn Europe. When he was young, Al's parents moved to Toronto. There he grew up and was educated at the University of Toronto. Earning his degrees in Engineering Science and Business Administration, he began his business career in the early 1970s, eventually becoming an Information Technology executive. Twenty years after his first job as the head of computing he shifted careers to be a management consultant in the field of Information Technology.
He has recently moved to Prince Edward County in Ontario, where he has taken up writing. Some ideas for science fiction novels that have gestated for years are now being developed among the vineyards, breweries, organic farms and gourmet eateries of this beautiful place.
