An early adopter of social media, (remember Flickr?) I used to toil as a copywriter for iStockphoto and I’ve relished a robust freelance writing career for many years. For the sake of efficiency and focus, I’ve scaled back my online presence to Instagram, Linkedin, and now this blog.

Photography is an ongoing pursuit, and I miss shooting with an SLR. Unless otherwise noted, all images on this blog were taken by me, including the header photo (shot from a plane over the Rockies between Vancouver and Edmonton).  I trained to shoot film while in journalism school and at times I miss the dark room.

As you can see from my photo, I appreciate the seawall and all things seaside. I’m also a pescetarian (am I spelling that right?) and live in Vancouver with my partner, visual artist and Pisces (there’s a nautical theme emerging here) Osvaldo Ramirez Castillo.
