I have over 20 years’ experience as a professional writer. My work covers a range of media, styles and topics. As a former freelance business and financial journalist, I contributed to several national publications, including The Globe and Mail, Benefits Canada, The Toronto Star, CMA Management, Advocis’ Forum and Investor’s Digest. As a corporate writer I’ve produced numerous newsletters, brochures, reports, ad copy and articles on topics ranging from insurance fraud prevention to retirement planning to chronic disease prevention. I’ve also contributed chapters to two academic books on environment and innovation. More recently, I’ve branched out into technical proposal and content marketing writing.

My education includes a Master’s degree in Italian Studies from the University of Toronto. I manage to maintain some Italian language proficiency through regular social gatherings with my network of Italian speaking friends and former colleagues – usually over some fabulous food and fine wine!
