Im a Canadian freelance writer and editor whos traveled the
world looking for great stories about people in far-flung places. I worked
as a journalist in London and Mexico City before returning to Canada in
1993, and settling in Toronto. Since then Ive contributed to dozens
of magazines and newspapers in Canada and the U.S., writing on everything
from parenting to politics. In between gigs, Ive managed to cover
many millions of miles (or so it seems!) in my pursuit of the interesting,
the quirky and the remote.
This Web site reflects some of my best print and online
work, with some examples of my photography as well. Recent highlights
of my career include writing a guidebook to Toronto for families, which
I hope will help others discover the wonderful place I call home. And
I'm pleased to announce an award I've just won — the 2005 Visit
USA Committee Excellence in Travel Writing Award.
Please take a look around and enjoy!
