Fiction

I’m a fiction writer with work in Extra Teeth, The Fiddlehead, Gutter, PEN, untethered, Tin House, The Stockholm Review of Literature, Valve and other publications.

I was fiction editor for The Island Review and Outside In Literary and Travel Magazine. I recently taught creative writing for imprisoned people as part of a PEN initiative.

Design

I’m a content designer with a leading global design and innovation consultancy. Previously, I led digital communications for an international relations organisation.

I have 10+ years of international experience in human-centred design, crisis communication, journalism, public relations and technical writing. I’ve worked in complex environments, including countries experiencing conflict, constitutional change and transitional justice.

Places

I live in Scotland.

I’m from Canada, where I grew up on the traditional unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) and Mi’kmaq Peoples.

I’ve also lived in Russia, Germany, Tunisia, India and England.
