ROLES ::   B.A., Creative Writing - UVIC

I first honed my craft at the University of Victoria. Mentored by acclaimed writers like Jack Hodgins and W.D. Valgardson, I majored in fiction and wrote numerous short stories, two of which were published in the literary magazine Seventh Wave. While still a student, I wrote scripts for the local television station, CHEK TV. UVic also offered an incredible Co-op program which is how I landed some of my first jobs. (Although it did little to help my grades, I feel it's worth noting that I was also drummer for Frantic Life, a rock band that played around Victoria.)
