Douglas V. Lintula

Douglas Lintula was born and raised in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Architects were his first role models, which led Doug to obtain a degree in architecture at the Unitversity of Manitoba and then work as an architect for more than a year before switching to a writing career, first in the architectural field and then more widely in the environmental area and beyond. Along the way, Doug also began exploring his deep interest in the theatre, first as an actor and later as a playwright. Over the years, his plays, including a mini-musical and two one-man shows, have been staged at arts and fringe festivals across Ontario.
