I graduated from the Writing and New Media Program at the College of New Caledonia in Prince George in 2004. I worked as a graphic designer at a local copy centre before becoming manager. When the business was bought out by a Vancouver based company I was promoted to Director of Print and Promo for Northern BC, overseeing five locations in central and northern BC. I moved to Lone Butte in 2019 and got my start with the 100 Mile Free Press as the Lone Butte correspondent in 2021. I joined the staff full-time as a multi-media journalist in May of 2022.
