THANKS FOR STOPPING BY.
I’m a Calgary-based freelance journalist, communications consultant and correspondent for Monocle magazine.
In September 2017 I launched THE SPRAWL: Calgary Pop-Up Journalism. The first edition will cover Calgary's municipal election and runs from September 18 to October 20.
As a generalist and two-time winner of National Magazine Awards in Canada, I write on a wide range of subjects including cities, travel, politics and baseball. I’ve become a go-to freelancer for national and international media seeking stories from the Calgary area. I’ve contributed to CBC, National Geographic Traveler, Vice, Metropolis, Reader's Digest, Swerve 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 write and consult primarily for non-profit organizations. I've worked with UNHCR and Calgary United Way, among others. 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.
