Overview

Stories have power. They can teach us about the world and inspire us to be heroes. They’re what connect us. Stories can be more effective than simply explaining the facts.

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved stories, whether reading and listening or telling my own. Now, I want to help you tell your stories.

I have worked on award-winning series and helped others whittle to the gold within their own stories. I am proud to be the Senior Editor for an incredible Canadian publishing house and continue to work on personal creations.

My specialty is Comics and Graphic Novels, with some experience with kids' stories and anthologies. I am looking to grow my skills with fictional prose
