When I work on a story, I get the facts straight and present them in a way that's clear and interesting to read. I file on time and stick within my word limit. And I submit clean copy, guaranteed.
I began my professional journalistic career in the early 1980s in Edmonton, Alberta. Later, after earning a journalism degree at Carleton University in Ottawa, I landed my first (and only) full-time newspaper job as a reporter at the Kingston Whig-Standard in Kingston, Ontario. I later became a freelance music columnist and, later still, the paper's Entertainment editor.
Since leaving the Whig in 1987 to work independently, I've covered a variety of topics and reviewed books for many of Canada's best-known newspapers and magazines, including:
Canadian Geographic Explore Outpost Ontario Nature Imperial Oil Review
Equinox Old Farmer's Almanac Globe and Mail Toronto Star National Post
I am a regular contributor to Kingston Life magazine and the Queen's University Alumni Review.
