I’m a former movie writer for the Toronto Star who penned a new life script for myself.
In 2016, I quit my job and packed in my career after working in Canadian newsrooms for more than three decades.
I’m now a full-time freelance travel writer, a boomer living life like a millennial — minus the selfies.
Passionate about travelling since my first flight at age 10, I am always looking for the next great story and fascinating person who will share it, from searching for quahogs with a shellfish forager in Prince Edward Island, to learning the hula from a bunch of rambunctious 7-year-olds on Rarotonga in the South Pacific.
Here, you'll find offbeat travel tales and captivating characters I hope will inspire you as you hit the road, along with practical tips and industry news. And there are movie stories, interviews and reviews, too.
