We don’t need more information. We need to know what it means. We need a story that explains what it means and makes us feel like we fit in there somewhere. (Annette Simmons, The Story Factor)

I am an award-winning journalist, editor and communications professional, specializing in media relations and issues management. I am passionate about telling compelling stories that need to be heard.

I reported for The Globe and Mail, The Toronto Star, The Vancouver Sun, CBC Radio and The Canadian Press in Canada and Central America. I have provided communications expertise to the David Suzuki Foundation, the Clayoquot Biosphere Project, Vancouver Public Library, the Vancouver Agreement, an initiative of the governments of Canada, British Columbia and Vancouver focused on the inner city, and Metro Vancouver, the federation of regional municipalities.
