I am a writer from Winnipeg, Manitoba. My short stories have been distributed by a variety of print and online publishers, including Fairlight Books, Sobotka Literary Magazine, and the Anti-Languorous Project. I am also a columnist at Canadian Dimension, and my non-fiction writings have also been published by Alborada, Liberated Texts, Protean Magazine, and others.
