I’m a freelance journalist in my hometown of Edmonton, Alberta. I began my career writing about wine and food, then expanded into theatre, arts and culture. On this site you’ll find a little bit of everything. Lately I’ve been focusing on wine.

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. Since then 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 also a former member of the Edmonton Food Council.
