Originally from Quebec, I wandered the world before finally making Toronto my home.
An avid consumer of art, accessories, and chocolate, I shopped in Paris, museum-hopped in Vienna, climbed a volcano in Guatemala, and got married in Negril, Jamaica. I like to devote my free time to the ongoing search for the perfect beach, while my time on land is spent on various creative pursuits.
My work as a writer, graphic artist, and designer has appeared in various publications including Dining Out magazine; the London Free Press; the Toronto Sun; the Wedding Guru Venue Guide; the Wedding Guru Health, Beauty and Fashion Guide; the Kitchener-Waterloo Record; DreamScapes magazine; FW magazine; Wine Access; Broken Pencil magazine; and Canadian Woman Studies.
I write about sex, weddings, books, movies and more for Suite101.com.
