The latest: I have finally accepted the truth about myself. I want to write. I want to write stories, books, screen plays, essays and poetry. I will do my best, come what may.
I love reading, and learning (and I’m also a little bit obsessed with Elvis Presley). I have other obsessions too but they are top secret since they’re related to ongoing writing projects. I’m into yoga (isn’t everybody?). I have a thing for vet shows, including gory surgeries – I think it’s the before and after that I like so much. I’m a tree and nature advocate. I grow herbs with my Dad and make tinctures and tea (legal ones haha). I love researching folk medicine and have an affinity for medical terminology. I revel in silence and calm, and want to run away and live in a cabin in the woods.
Job stuff: I have worked in communications for my entire career: in advertising, for community newspapers in Ontario and more recently doing online communications for the United Nations Development Programme (10 years) with a focus on digital and social innovation. I also had a short stint doing public affairs for the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). I was working and travelling abroad for more than a decade, and am now fully revelling in being back home. My specialties: Writing, editing, proofreading, advocacy, content strategy, website management, social media engagement.
