My Bio
I am a freelance writer, photographer, editor, artist, musician, and activist in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. My photography focuses on still life, nature, and social justice. My visual art is abstract and uses a variety of medias, in particular tempera paints and food colouring (but not necessarily at the same time). I can often be found in the inner city, in coffee shops and cafes, and sometimes going far too deep into my head. I play the guitar and write songs, and stand for peace, human rights, and social justice.

It's been a real year of ups and downs since last I wrote a journal entry here. I am still taking lots of pictures, but have been posting them at my photo blog rather than here. I have also been working on a few new abstract paintings, and may be posting some new work in the near future.
