A National Magazine Award winner, I mostly enjoy writing personal essays and short stories. I've published articles in numerous magazines, an essay in an anthology, and a biography (of Brad Pitt). But I am equally experienced as a freelance writer and copy-editor who loves to make someone's ideas or words sing. Recently, I've worked in the Instructional Media Design field, developing online courses. I have extensive knowledge of rhetoric, grammar, and creative non-fiction, having worked in these disciplines as an instructor for Grant MacEwan university for the past seven years. In terms of relevant education, I have an undergraduate degree in professional writing and an MFA in Creative Writing.
