About Me

About Me

I’m a Vancouver Island-based writer who is inspired by landscapes—both interior and exterior. My work tends to explore themes of mortality, spirituality, and the natural world.

My essays and poems have appeared in The Atlantic, The Washington Post, The Globe and Mail, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, The Rumpus, The Writer, A Verse Map of Vancouver, Quills Canadian Poetry, Sulphur III, and other publications. I’ve won a few poetry awards and hold an M.A. in writing. I was editor-in-chief of DECOR magazine for a year and a contributing editor to Art Business News for five years. I’ve also written for Yoga Journal, Artist Advocate, and other magazines. I am a member of the Creative Nonfiction Collective.

My Home: Vancouver Island
I’ve lived on Vancouver Island for nearly three years and absolutely love exploring this area and the Southern Gulf Islands. The ocean and islands offer endless creative fodder for the imagination.

Marketing & Social Media
I put this site together to showcase my personal writing, but I also have extensive experience as a marketing writer and social media consultant. If you’d like to learn more about my marketing services, you can visit BigWaveCopywriting.com.
