Thanks for stopping by.
I’ve had an eclectic professional career that has helped shape much of my writing. I spent ten years working in policy and research in various levels of government, and in 2001, I graduated with a Master in Public Administration, specializing in local governance. The work was interesting but I always knew something was missing. That is when I began to cultivate my interest in the interconnectedness between people and the spaces where they live, work, play and die.
Much of my writing is a direct result of that curiosity. My focus and interests include global culture and development, the environment, urban issues and global citizenship.
Some of my early writing and public speaking led me back into the classroom, this time, for seven years as an adjunct professor teaching in the social sciences (courses in public administration and women and politics) and arts and humanities (where I took my practical experience as an award-winning writer and columnist to the classroom). I have now stepped back from my teaching commitments to research and write widely on those curiosities that inspired me all those years ago.
I now split my time between Canada and the UK working (I hold dual citizenship) and exploring many of these issues on both sides of the Atlantic.
If you would like more information or to chat about a project then please send me a message and let’s see if we can work together.
