THANKS FOR STOPPING BY.
I’m a Calgary freelance writer, communications consultant and correspondent for Monocle.
As a generalist and two-time winner of National Magazine Awards in Canada, I write on a wide range of subjects including cities, travel and politics. I’ve become a go-to freelancer for national and international media seeking stories from the Calgary area. With over 12 years of experience as a journalist, I’ve contributed to CBC, National Geographic Traveler, Metropolis, Reader's Digest, The Walrus and the Globe & Mail. I ghost wrote legendary western singer Ian Tyson’s book, The Long Trail, a national bestseller.
On the communications side, I’ve helped humanitarian organizations including UNHCR and Calgary United Way tell their stories. At United Way, a colleague and I won a Gold Quill Award from the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) for crisis communications after the 2013 Southern Alberta floods.
