I have a Journalism Certificate (Langara) and a B.A., Communications (SFU) with more than 15 years experience writing for community newspapers, magazine features, government issues and briefing notes, print advertising copy, PowerPoint presentations, web copy, speech writing, poetry, essays, humour, branding and strategic communications planning.

In 2012, I attended The Writer’s Studio at SFU, a part-time, creative writing program where I was a member of the non fiction cohort facilitated by novelist Brian Payton.

I followed the above by taking a six-month manuscript course in 2014 with the writer/novelist/activist Wayde Compton as part of a six person cohort. Where’s the book you may well ask? Yes. Indeed!
