Writing

I write for outlets like CBC, the Toronto Star, and University Affairs magazine. My specialties lie in health and science journalism and travel and culture writing. I also enjoy writing about career development and interiors.

In the past, I’ve interned and freelanced at a number of publications including The International New York Times, Where Toronto, The Toronto Standard, and the Collective Quarterly. You can find a selection of my written work below.
