Communications Committee Chair
Born in 1962 in New Brunswick, Canada, Duane Gordon travelled widely before finally settling in Montreal, Canada. He married Linda Walker in 1984 and is the father of two daughters, one of whom has ADHD.
Duane, an adult with ADHD, has been involved in the ADHD community for more than 15 years. He is a founding member of the Montreal Adult ADD Support Group, a group in continuous operation since 1998, and he joined ADDA’s Communication team in 2005, volunteering as a writer, and later taking on the role of eNews editor.
In 2011, Duane became the ADDA Communication Committee Chair to continue his efforts to enable people’s full self-expression. It’s a challenge for anyone to find their "voice,” and ADHD can make the obstacle seem insurmountable. Duane’s own experience, and the struggles of many of his fellow adults with ADHD, convinced him we all have a story to tell, a contribution to make, and the world would be a much better place if we all had the opportunity to express our unique gift.
Despite his own struggles with ADHD, Duane’s childhood dream never wavered; he would be an artist. Life imposed detours; he earned his business degree from the Collège Militaire Royal, veered into high technology, first as a programmer, later a teacher and finally rising to the executive level in high technology consulting.
However, in 2007 he determined to "take back his life,” pursuing his art career with the same drive and passion that brought success in other fields. Today, Duane lives in Montreal where he pursues his art, continues to consult in high technology and works to create opportunities for people to be fully expressed.
