About Me


Travel, eat, drink and write - Don't dream it, be it!


I am a history nerd with a passion for travel, a love of beer, wine and amazing food.


Stay curious.


I spend an unhealthy amount of time thinking about food and things to drink while eating food. I am a pop culture, history and geography nerd, and I like to show off my knowledge in these near useless areas of life by competing in pub quizzes. I love animals (especially other people's dogs)and am easily distracted when they are nearby. I live to write, and I love going to theatre, art galleries, live shows and local Vancouver cultural events.
