Michael Andruff

Mike Andruff is the author of self-published ten travel books. He is a first-generation Canadian and was in a unique position to observe his refugee father over the course of his lifetime, which provided the material for his memoir, The Russian Refugees. The solitude brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and the notion of writing a family history revealed to him the importance of the private sponsorship of refugees in Canada. After a long career in business, he is now happily retired and lives in Vancouver, BC, with his wife, Claire.
