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, both a feature-length film and one hour drama optioned and stories 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 stories have been published in volumes of the critically-acclaimed Toronto Comix. I am a recognized contributor on Comixology.
