Professionally, personally, and sometimes even while sleeping, I’m a digital storyteller. A Bay Street alumnus, I bring with me a rich portfolio of articles on banking regulations, insurance disclosure and CFO best practices. After a daring escape from the financial district, I went on to reside on a remote Nicaraguan island where I took care of my very own flock of chickens, scrubbed laundry in a lake, and even had short stint as an apprentice iguana hunter (that didn’t last long.)
In the recent past, I’ve:
- Survived a lightning storm atop a Guatemalan volcano
- Watched the sunrise on Mount Everest
- Gone over 312 hours without a shower
- Gritted my teeth through rabies shots after a fight with a monkey over a banana
- Stood on the summit of Mount Rainier
My recent work has been published in: The Huffington Post, Outpost Magazine and RoadsandKingdoms.com. I’m best known for a little blog post, Date a Boy Who Travels, which went viral in 2013, and inspired a whole lineage of articles: Date a Girl Who Travels, Don’t Date a Girl Who Travels, the ever-similar Date a Guy Who Travels and my personal favorite, Date a Potato. My proudest career moment was when one of my fiction stories was long listed for the CBC Canada Writes Short Story Prize.
A traveler of both the world and the imagination, I write because I believe great stories allow us to experience the intensely individual human experience and find that we are not alone.
