I've worked as a freelance journalist for the past four years, covering culture, books and health for outlets like the New York Times, the Globe and Mail, the Walrus, and Chatelaine. I also work as a fact-checker and researcher on a number of award-winning podcasts like Scamfluencers and Business Wars.

Beyond journalism, I work as a cartoonist and illustrator. I make monthly editorial cartoons for the Globe and Mail, and have drawn for the New Yorker, The Coast, and the CBC. If you're interested in buying some art, you can check out my print shop!

I graduated from the University of Guelph with an MFA in Creative Writing in 2023. My first book, Look Ma, No Hands: A Chronic Pain Memoir, will be published in McClelland & Stewart in 2025.
