I am a freelance writer living in Toronto, Canada, where I was also born and raised. I am a regular contributor to Hazlitt, and my work also appears in The Walrus, Toronto Life, This, Reader’s Digest, Elle Canada, and The Grid. My Hazlitt essay, “How to Succeed in Journalism when You Can’t Afford an Internship”, was reprinted in The Guardian, and discussed in articles in Poynter, Forbes, and the New York Times. In 2013, I was a finalist for two National Magazine Awards in the categories of Best Short Feature and Best Essay.
I have also worked in marketing and non-profit communications, where I created website, magazine, and other print content for a variety of clients. Prior to that, I did a PhD in English Literature at what is now known as Western University.
I reside in Toronto’s Chinatown area with my partner, Jeremy, and our cats, Phoenix and Snugglepaws McWhiskerface.
