Hi, I’m David Lindskoog.
When I’m not filling these pages with words, I’m working as a career counsellor/advisor at Simon Fraser University and a counsellor at Oak Counselling Services in British Columbia, Canada. I have the privilege of working with a population of youth that’s facing a lot of challenge and misunderstanding, and I wouldn’t change a thing! Even though I don’t believe in the concept of a dream job, it’s pretty great to help people get inspired and engaged in their career and life.
Most of my writing is inspired by my experiences in the helping professions – be it as a counsellor, a career advisor, or simply a human being. So, it’s not uncommon to find the occasional career advice article (although I try to avoid preaching, and usually end up asking a lot more questions than I answer). I also like to write about ideas and theories I’m captivated by, books or other media I’ve found thought provoking, and even the occasional short story!
Of course, opinions expressed here, and in any of my published material, are my own and not those of my employer(s).
Thanks for reading!
