I have been an entrepreneur since the age of fifteen. I have 40+ years experience as an Author, Writer, Journalist, Forensic Researcher, Producer, Director, Documentarian, Business Manager and Supervisor, Photographer, Creative Editor, Transmedia ‘Navigator’, Web Developer, and Teacher. My diverse media-creative career continues to intersect all disciplines including Television, Film, Radio, Online, and Publishing.
I have two Emmy® award nominations as a Producer, Writer and Director of programming for PBS, two Gemini Award nominations, several Leo award and Remi award wins and nominations, and I have won a journalism award.
I created and produced the first-ever live, interactive Television-Internet simulcast in Canada for CBC in 1997.
I co-wrote an adventure biography about the life and times of the first woman to drive around the world entitled, Aloha Wanderwell: The Border-Smashing, Record-Setting Life of the World’s Youngest Explorer. Aloha is currently repped by Westwood Creative Artists and was published in October 2016 by Goose Lane Editions.
I am currently writing a revisionist spy novel, the first in a three-book series.
I have lived in fifty-two different places in my life. If I count the housesitting engagements it’s been more than a hundred. I live everywhere, but I currently reside in Vancouver.
