I graduated from the journalism program at Loyalist College, Belleville Ontario in 1994. I have worked as a freelance writer and photographer for local daily and weekly newspapers. These include the Peterborough Examiner, Barrys Bay This Week, Bancroft Times.and Ottawa Citizen.
In 1999 I formed and later sold the weekly newspaper The Algonquin News.
I have written a number of historical documents for the Ministry of Natural Resources (now Parks Canada).
I have also created safety and management plans for construction companies.
