Born and raised in southwestern Ontario, Canada, I've spent most of my adult life as a secondary school Arts educator (26 years and counting), with a particular focus in Dance, Drama, Visual Arts, as well as Expressive Arts in Special Education classrooms.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art and English Literature, a Bachelor of Education, certification in Expressive Arts Therapy (3 year program), along with studies at the European Graduate School, Switzerland. I am also a graduate of the Humber School for Writers (fiction writing).
Debut novel, Becoming Leidah, April 13, 2021.
