I work in content strategy and marketing – mostly for NOW Magazine in Toronto, but also as a freelancer for federal and municipal cultural agencies, post-secondary institutions, public school boards, startups, production companies, and nonprofit organizations.
My essays and journalism have appeared in THIS Magazine, Full Stop, Vancouver Review, and The Georgia Straight. In 2012, The Malahat Review named me as a finalist for the Constance Rooke Creative Nonfiction Prize.
I’ve written episodic television and two plays, including Prodigals – which I adapted into a feature screenplay that I sold to Vancouver’s Whiskaye Films, who partnered with Sociable Films for a production that wrapped in early 2016. Currently, I’m at work on my first novel.
After I was named a top-five finalist in the Austin Film Festival’s screenplay competition, the festival invited me to participate in their AFF Writers’ Ranch program where I was one of three writers mentored by veteran screenwriters Herschel Weingrod (Trading Places, Twins) and James V. Hart (Hook, Contact).
I have a diploma in screenwriting from Vancouver Film School and a degree in English literature from Carleton University. This blog is primarily about writers and writing culture, but sometimes I use it to promote my own projects too. All opinions are my own and don’t reflect the views of my clients.
