I’m a writer and editor with a lifelong passion for food and nutrition.
In 2007 I attended Slow Food’s University of Gastronomic Sciences / Università degli Studi di Scienze Gastronomiche in northern Italy, earning a Master’s in Food Culture and Communication. In 2014 I became a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (R.H.N.) after studies at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, where I taught a class in Eco-Nutrition for many years. My writing often features ecological themes and I’ve appeared on poetry or creative nonfiction panels at ASLE and ALECC conferences over the years.
I’ve made a living largely from corporate, technical, creative and grant writing for many years. I’ve taught classroom, one-on-one and online courses and workshops in corporate training, creative writing and culinary/nutrition areas.
I’m also a poet and writer of creative nonfiction; my books are listed here. I’ve given public readings in venues large and small, and you’ll find a small selection of my poems in print and in voice elsewhere on this website.
Please contact me if you’d like to book me for readings, writing work or a nutritional consultation. I’m currently based in Victoria, BC.
