A Bit About Me

Growing up near the ocean, I knew that I wanted to study marine biology when I began my undergraduate degree at the University of King's College. Over time, however, I became curious about the field of science communication. After

graduating with a Bachelor of Science, I enrolled in a journalism program and later completed a Master of Fine Arts in creative nonfiction. In 2021, I will be returning to school for a one-year program in science communication at the

University of Edinburgh. My articles have been featured in local and national magazines in Canada and

I'm always on the lookout for interesting assignments. 

Wild Places

I'm currently working on my first book about Canada's national parks. You can read more about the project on my blog.
