Originally from Saskatchewan, I am a freelance writer/editor and video producer/director living in Toronto, Canada. I am currently working with Fathom, LiisBeth, and BTV. Work history includes thirteen years in corporate communications/branded content at CNW Group and prior to that, seven years in drama/doc/lifestyle/factual TV production. I also teach creative writing for Sarah Selecky's Writing School and Intro to Screenwriting at the University of Toronto's School of Continuing Studies. I am an alumnus of the Banff Wired Writing Studio and my writing has been published in Geist, Little Bird Stories: Volumes I and II, Taddle Creek, and ELLE Canada. I was shortlisted for the 2016 ReLit awards, longlisted for the 2014 CBC Short Story Prize, and won the Random House of Canada Creative Writing Award at the University of Toronto in 2012. Moving Parts is my first book.
