I’m a sound-loving radio artist.

My radio documentaries have aired on CBC, ABC, BBC as well as in a weather observatory in France, a hairdryer in Pittsburgh and a grain silo in Norway. I'm particularly curious about the nature of time, my doc on the subject Dr.Clock was a finalist for the Prix Italia in 2015.

These days I spend most of my time working with CBC Original Podcasts producing Alone: A Love Story, Sleepover with Sook-Yin Lee and The Fridge Light.

Due to my deep love of the internet, I've also made interactive documentaries. I won a National Community Radio Award for a project I produced in collaboration with Halifax Public Libraries. It's called StackStories you can check it out here. And I co-created a watery web experience called Body of Water.

Whenever I'm not holding a mic, I can be found collecting strong female vocals, saving vintage photos of radio women, braiding hair on air, and reminding myself to go for a swim.
