I'm a queer Canadian nonfiction writer whose passions for travel and soccer have led me to play the beautiful game on four continents. I specialize in stories about travel, sport, human rights, and LGBT and gender issues, and my writing has appeared in publications including Sports Illustrated online, the Globe & Mail, and Curve Magazine. I'm currently at work on my first book.
An activist for more than two decades, I currently serve on the board of directors for Pride House International, and I'm the team lead for Football v Homophobia - Americas. I've offered expert consultation in print, video, radio, and as a podcast guest for more than a dozen international outlets, and I'm a two-time winner of the Toronto-based Gary Manz Award for "great dedication or volunteerism in the community, most notably towards gay sport". I'm available for speaking engagements on topics including LGBTQ+ sports inclusion, women and girls in international soccer/football, and using sport for community development.
When not writing, travelling, or speaking, I spend my free time trying to figure out how to qualify for a soccer squad in Asia, Australia, or Antarctica.

In addition to writing and editing, I offer social media management services to small and medium-sized organizations and non-profits. Contact me.
Whether working with tourism bureaus, social justice organizations, content marketing clients, literary publications, or other writers, my goal is to produce quality, meaningful storytelling.
