Orion Ussner Kidder was born on Vancouver Island, and the memories of being surrounded by wet trees have never left him. He grew up in Vancouver where he attended Simon Fraser University and then went to Ontario for a Master’s degree from Queen’s at Kingston. He lived in Edmonton while he completed his PhD at the University of Alberta. He has since moved home to Vancouver where he teaches at SFU and FDU. He lives on the city’s West Side with his wife and their cat.
