Writing has always been something I’ve always been drawn to, and now after a few detours I’ve found myself writing creative nonfiction, which seems like a natural transition for my work.
After a decade of working as a journalist for print and broadcast, I’m leaning into storytelling, and am finding ways to tell my own stories while finding connection to this crazy world around us.
In the Spring of 2020, I graduated with an MFA in creative nonfiction from the University of King’s College.
In addition to being a writer and freelance journalist, I am the Director of Audience Development for the BC and Yukon Book Prizes. I also the producer and host of Writing The Coast: The Official Podcast of the BC and Yukon Book Prizes.
In November 2017, I launched Water & Wood: Recipes from a Coastal Community. This cookbook showcases the recipes and stories of Powell River, Lund, Texada Island and the Tla’amin Nation, whose land I live and work on.
