I’m a writer and cultural manager who lives and works on the ancient and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

I have a passion for books, writing, language, and the people who bring new creative or literary writing into the world. I’ve been an independent bookseller for most of my life, working with some of the best bookshops in Vancouver and elsewhere, and this perspective informs a lot of my work,

Though I have spent a lot of time working with cultural organizations such as the Canada Council for the Arts and BC Arts Council, I have a long history of working with the hospitality industry, including as General Manager of the Storm Crow Alliance in its early years.
