CONNECTING UNRELATED THINGS
IN UNEXPECTED WAYS

Passionate about news, culture, trends and ideas, I create content worth consuming for publications like The Globe & Mail, The National Post, Elle Canada, Fashion Magazine and Doctor's Review.
And yes, I blog.

SUBJECTS OF FASCINATION

In the name of a good story, I have checked into North America’s only civilian boot camp; delved into the secret lives of cowboys at an Alberta cattle ranch; weighed the pros and cons of being stranded on a Chilean island with nothing but a piece of Gucci luggage, and witnessed an island wedding at which the groom was the surprised guest.  

I've also had the privilege of interviewing such luminaries as Mireille Guiliano (French Women Don’t Get Fat), British humorist Stephen Clarke (A Year in the Merde), scientist and futurist David Brin, JP Delhomme (The Cultivated Life), marketing provocateur Ryan Holiday (Trust Me, I’m Lying), American entrepreneur Peter Shankman and murderous socialite Patrizia Gucci.
