I have written for many magazines, including The Walrus, ROB, Broadview, This, Canadian Living, Geez and Today's Parent. My first book, Highrise  (Firefly, 2019), has been nominated for a 2020 Forest of Reading Award.

While my interests are broad, my passion is to write about human rights issues both at home and overseas. I have travelled the globe to cover stories in Niger, Uganda, Brazil, South Africa and Mexico.


I’m a storyteller with an insatiable curiosity. In the past 20 years, I’ve applied my editing and writing skills to print, digital and broadcast for both media outlets and non-profit organizations. I'm honoured to have picked up a few awards along the way.
