I'm a writer based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Most of my work is longform literary journalism, whether online, in magazines or books.

These days, I mostly report on Alberta politics for The Sprawl, but I've also freelanced for a wide variety of publications. More sporadically, I host a podcast, teach the odd journalism or writing seminar, and perform editing services on contract.
