I’m always interested in taking on new projects and collaborating with fresh faces.
I’m currently the editor of the Teaching Experiment, a school director’s account of her time spent building a school from scratch.
However, here you can find some of my previous work:
I contributed to The Adventure Traveler’s Handbook by Nellie Huang.
WildJunket is an adventure travel magazine and blog. I wrote for them for over a year, and was their editor for a stretch.
- This is the Spring 2013 issue, which I edited. You can also find my Travel Rant column and gear reviews inside.
- Here are a few popular posts I wrote: 20 Signs That You’re Addicted to Travelling, How Technology Has Changed the Way We Travel, and Solo Female Travel: Is It a Matter of Safety?
- You can find all of my writing for the blog here, and all of my writing for the magazine blog here.
I spent a summer working for Canadian Geographic at its offices in Ottawa, Ontario. I fact-checked three magazine issues for them, and wrote for their magazines (both Canadian Geographic and Canadian Geographic Travel) and their Compass blog. Here’s a collection of stories I wrote for them:

- Getting an Underwater Grip
- On the Horizon
- The Inside Story: Eyes on the North, Setting Sail, & Going Above and Beyond for Geography
- The Inside Story: A Capital Idea, Summer Class, & Scholar Dollars
- Hide and Geo-Seek
- Fossils: Lost and Found… and Lost Again
- Canada’s Latest UNESCO World Heritage Site
- Long Beach Wild
- Queen Street: Toronto’s Urban Treasure
- The New Northwest Passage
The Martlet is the University of Victoria’s weekly newspaper. I wrote a few articles for them on diverse topics: why euthanasia should be a right, the neuroscience of music, and how to ace your New Year’s resolutions.
- Beaches in Kenora, Ontario
- Symbiosis Festival in California
- Kootenay Beaches
- The Hillside Festival in Guelph
I can teach you how to do things on eHow. Learn how to boost your SAT scores, where to go for a watermelon festival, and how to spend your money on ridiculously expensive food.
- How Safe is it to Travel to the Galapagos?
- Helicopter Skiing in British Columbia
- Best Places to Camp in Utah
I wrote about the dangers of city life for PowerHouse Growers.
I went to events and reported on them for Festival Seekers. It was a lot of fun. Here are the articles:
- Whistler summer round-up
- Musical Diversity Hits the Stage at Whistler
- Burnaby Blues & Roots Festival
- A Taste of Aboriginal Culture Every Tuesday
- Klahowya Village Immerses Guests in Aboriginal Culture
I translated scholar-ese academic papers into articles for people interested in the business world. Want to know the pros and cons of working from home? Or what kind of humour to use when winning employees over?
