I’m a freelance journalist in my hometown of Edmonton, Alberta. I’ve written for numerous publications. Visit the Portfolio page for some of my recent writing credits. My book on Canadian wine trivia was published in 2009.

I’m a former editor of Vue Weekly (local news and food/drink) and wrote regular content for that paper between 2010 and 2016. I had an extensive portfolio of work there, but Vue closed down in 2018 so the only place you can view anything is trawling through issuu.

I’m a former member of the Edmonton Food Council and did some writing and other communications work for the Food Council’s blog.

On this site you can expect to find stories about food, wine, theatre and other stuff that didn’t make it into other publications.
