Before going freelance full-time in 2018, I worked as a Writer and Communications Specialist at CIFAR, the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research where I got to write about the ground-breaking, big-picture research being done by CIFAR fellows around the world.

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. My specialties lie in health and science journalism, and travel and culture writing. I also enjoy writing about career development and interiors.  You can find a selection of my written work below.
