I am a longform journalist and fact-checker currently based in Northern Ontario. I don't have a beat yet—everything is interesting! I've written about Medical Assistance in Dying, refugee housing, the spirituality of mountain climbing, Indigenous rock art, caribou, and even mushroom foraging. I also fact-check for multiple notable Canadian magazines and non-fiction authors. 

Get in touch if you want to work together! Or just, you know, chat.
