I am a regular feature writer for University Affairs magazine and was previously a news, feature and column writer for Post Media over 15 years, as well as a news feature contributor to Yahoo Canada News. In 2017, I was honoured with Gold at the Canadian Online Publishing Awards following a Gold at the Canadian Business Media Awards in 2015 for my UA article, “How to teach math.” I have reported internationally for such publications as Christian Science Monitor, covering stories on education, crime, politics and human rights from places such as Hong Kong, Thailand, Vietnam, Burma, Israel, Syria and New Zealand.
In addition to my journalism, I provide professional writing and editing services to a roster of clients. These have included AdvantAGE Ontario, the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, Foresters Financial, the Canadian Cancer Society and SickKids Foundation.
I hold an MA in journalism from Western University and am completing an MFA in creative nonfiction at the University of King’s College, Halifax. I’ve enjoyed the privilege too of passing on my craft as an adjunct journalism instructor at Ryerson University and Centennial College.
