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

Hi.

Hello. I’m a BSW student, freelance writer and communications assistant for The Homeless Hub.

These days, most of my time is spent on finishing my BSW degree at York University, where I am studying anti-oppressive and critical social work. I am passionate about recovery-oriented mental health and counselling, group and community work, and social policy.

I occasionally still freelance. In the past, I have written extensively about feminism, tech/Internet, media and politics, though I am increasingly pitching short fiction and other oddities. 

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, smart discussions about politics/culture/mental health, live music, wine, board games, sci-fi, coffee and all things Joss Whedon.

Things people sometimes pay me to do

  • Write stuff (commentary, narratives, how-to articles, blog posts, marketing copy, newsletters, communications and marketing materials, etc)
  • Community & social media consulting, strategy and management
  • Content strategy and management
  • Editing and proofreading
