Consider me for your next writing or research assignment.

I’ve been working professionally since the early 1990s and have written hundreds of news articles and features as well as case studies, website content, social media and blog posts, advertorials, promotional material, press releases, newsletters, etc.

My articles have appeared in The National Post, The Globe and Mail, NOW Magazine, Maclean’s magazine, TVO.org, etc.

I currently write for several business and trade publications, including Canadian Metalworking, On-Site magazine, Business in Focus and Construction in Focus.

I have written case studies and promotional material for government and corporate clients.

I am also a published author who has written over a dozen books, primarily in the true-crime genre (see my Book page for details).
