Artist’s CV


I’m the author of seven books spanning fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. Two of my books have been nominated for the ReLit Award for poetry, and I’ve been invited to be a keynote speaker and presenter at the International Festival of Authors, and the Where Next? creative writing symposium in Calgary, Alberta.

My previous novel, PostApoc, was translated into French by XYZ Editions, and some of the poems from my book No Work Finished Here: Rewriting Andy Warhol were adapted for a musical by a cabaret troupe in Philadelphia, PA.

My writing has also appeared in numerous publications, including The Globe and Mail, FLARE, Toronto Star, Refinery29, and Chatelaine. I graduated from Humber College’s journalism program with honours in 2006.

Outside of writing, I run a full-time tarot business and have published two books on tarot through my work as a card reader. I was also the resident astrology for FLARE Magazine in 2020, providing a monthly horoscope column for one of Canada’s leading fashion publications.
