I have now completed my four-year position as research assistant to Dr. Gabor Mate. I’m deeply grateful to Dr. Mate for his kind guidance and enlightening leadership, for the trust he bestowed in me, and for the opportunity to delve deeply into the research about the biopsychosocial impacts of our contemporary culture.
Gratitude to the keen-eyed editors of Event Magazine for their input on my two poems, "Advice for Murdered Girls" and "Crossing the Street on the Way to the Divorce Office." Both poems can be found in the hot-off-the-press issue of Event, here: https://www.eventmagazine.ca/shop/product/current-issue/event-461/
In this frankly narrated memoir, Leo Poulos tells incredible stories of survival and ingenuity, from escaping Communists in a small Greek village to the financial gamble of restaurant and property ownership in Vancouver, Canada. What does it take to become a hugely successful entrepreneur in a brand new world? The recipe, as Poulos discovered, requires equal parts insight and ethics served on a platter of plain hard work. It helps to have supportive family and friends, a hard-earned appreciation of food, and a bit of luck dodging death.
