I began writing short stories in middle school and found a love for poetry in University. I studied English Literature and Creative Writing at St. Thomas University in so called Fredericton New Brunswick. I was able to expand my skills through work at Goose Lane Editions --Canada's oldest independent publisher-- , moorehype publicity, The Miramichi Reader, The Fiddlehead, and elsewhere.
