Originally from Ottawa, I have been living in Owen Sound since 2010. I have a background in art theory and linguistics, and came within 8 years of completing a Ph.D. in Classical Studies.

I work as a translator and have served as an event coordinator for the Words Aloud Festival of Spoken Word and Storytelling. I’m a member of SOCAN and a full member of the League of Canadian Poets.

In addition to writing, I am devoted to social justice causes and community involvement, having performed at numerous functions and served on several local committees.

When not moonlighting as a handyman and decorator, I make disturbing sounds with guitars and ukuleles.
