While I was born in Vancouver in the early 1980s my family moved to Steveston, B.C. later that decade. I studied in the French Immersion program in high school and went on to to obtain a Bachelor of Arts in political science from the University of British Columbia as well as an informal degree in stocking milk from Canada Safeway. From 2005 I worked as a website and SEO strategist and a bank teller before finding a path in journalism at Langara College. Upon completion of the accelerated Certificate of Journalism program in April, 2008 I was hired by the Vancouver Sun where I plied the trade until November, 2010. After a short seven months working as a freelance writer I moved to Seoul, South Korea, with my family where I taught ESL, copy-edited and galavanted around Asia. As of August, 2013 I once again call Richmond home.
