I am a Toronto based writer and graduate of Ty Templeton's "How to Write Comics" program. I have had a play produced in the Fringe Festival, a film optioned and a story, essay and articles appear in various publications. I wrote and produced an online video segment for CBC's TIFF coverage and was runner-up for MTV's "Basterdize Tarantino Contest" judged by Quentin Tarantino and Eli Roth. My story, The Sultan of Hanlan's Point, was published in the critically-acclaimed  Toronto Comics Anthology Volume 2, and I have stories forthcoming in Volume 3 and the horror anthology, Hogtown Horror. I am a recognized contributor on Comixology.
