I’m a multi-genre writer and freelance journalist. My bylines range from The Globe and Mail to Utne Reader to Poetry Ireland Review. I have a degree in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia and a Master of Journalism from Ryerson University (now Toronto Metropolitan University). I’m the author of a book of travel essays and a poetry collection. Canada is “home” but I suffer from wanderlust. At the moment I live part-time in Galicia, Spain, where I care for a growing number of abandoned cats.
