Profile

I’m a writer and editor specializing in projects related to environment and education. I've written and edited for twenty-five years in contexts including academic publishing, university communications, and environmental and nature education. I've also worked as a nature educator and program planner.

As a writer, I translate complex ideas into clear prose and tell compelling stories about place and relationship.

As an editor, I see myself as an advocate for your readers, moving aside obstacles to their understanding and enjoyment of your text. This means being a committed steward of your ideas and voice, an experienced guide for your readers, and always making sure to help, not harm.

Focus Areas

Environment, ecology, conservation, biodiversity, permaculture, food justice, active transportation, urban nature, sustainable cities, wildlife tracking and awareness, outdoor education, adult learning, transformative education; topics related to physical, mental, and emotional health and wellness in individuals and communities.

Education

I hold a BA from the University of Toronto, an MA in English from Western University, an MEd in Adult Education and Community Development from OISE/UT, and a Certificate in Publishing from Ryerson University.  At Ryerson I was awarded the Eve Orpen Memorial Award for general academic excellence in the publishing program. I have also completed field-based apprenticeship programs in wildlife tracking and plant and ecological knowledge, and am certified as a Level III wildlife tracker through CyberTracker North America. 

Testimonials

"Thanks a bunch! I'm starting to understand how to write better because of all your edits. In fact, doing these blog posts every week has been the part I've enjoyed most about this project." Alan Li, Nature Artist and Educator, League of Urban Nature Artists (LUNA) Toronto

"The magazine has dropped today, and I just wanted to send a mighty big Thank You your way! It's another amazing edition, and your edits were great and really expedited the process.
