I’m a freelance journalist in my hometown of Edmonton, Alberta. I’m a former editor for Vue Weekly (news, food and drink) and spent several years freelancing for Vue. I started my writing career with a weekly wine column in the now-defunct SEE Magazine.

Recently I’ve struck out on my own and have written items for numerous other publications, including Taproot and Avenue Magazine. I’ve also published a book on Canadian wine trivia.

On this site you can expect to find a lot of stories about wine, food and Edmonton theatre, along with some other things that tickle my fancy, and which are very likely related to at least one of the first three things.
