Who is Doug Matthews?






Doug has a diverse background: Twenty-two years in the Royal Canadian Air Force serving as an aeronautical engineer; nineteen years as the owner of an event production company; and over five years as a university lecturer. Throughout this time and right up to the present, he has also passionately embraced writing and photography, drawing on his experience in special events and his other areas of interest, archaeology and entertainment. To date he has published five textbooks on special event production, one book of humourous anecdotes of his entertainment career, and four photography books as well as numerous journal and magazine articles. All books may all be found under the Books and Photography menus; other articles on LinkedIn (see button below). His newer writing, opinion pieces about current affairs, may be found in the Blog on this web site.
