This is me and my dog Willow, an Australian Shepherd Mystery Mutt. 

Hi.

Hello. I’m a social worker in-training (BSW complete, MSW upcoming) freelance writer and communications assistant for The Homeless Hub.

These days, most of my time is spent studying anti-oppressive and critical social work. I am passionate about recovery-oriented mental health and counselling, holistic approaches to health, harm reduction, group and community work, and social policy.

I occasionally still freelance. In the past, I have written extensively about feminism, social justice, harm reduction, tech/Internet, media and politics. I also like writing fiction, but don't pitch it very often.

Sometimes I talk about things. I’ve appeared on BBC’s World Have Your Say, CBC’s Metro Morning, and TVO’s The Agenda. Along those lines, I occasionally tell stories to rooms full of people.

I’m really into bad jokes, cycling, live music, board games, sci-fi, coffee and all things Joss Whedon.
