About

cormorantToddInlet-5My writing centres around creative non-fiction, specifically science and nature writing and memoir. The landscapes and issues of western Canada are the main inspiration for my work. I’ve freelanced for CH2M Hill, the University of Alberta, Outpost Magazine, and others over the past decade. My training includes writing workshops with Daphne Marlatt, Candas Jane Dorsey, Ken McGoogan, Ed Struzik and others, and editing courses through the University of Alberta.

Academically, my background is in cold regions hydroecology. As a university professor, I studied snow & ice hydrology and ecosystem interactions in alpine & forested mountain regions across Western and Arctic Canada. I also taught courses in environmental science, hydrology and resource management.

I’m a member of the Canadian Science Writers’ Association and The Editors’ Association of Canada, and a Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society.
