About Me

I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC. In 2016 I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts & Sciences from the University of Guelph, in Ontario, with specializations in Zoology and Classical Studies. For those who don't know, Zoology is the study of animals and their environment, and Classical Studies focuses on ancient Greece and Rome. You did not read that wrong - it is a very strange combination.

Since graduating I moved back to Vancouver, where I now work as an Education Coordinator for an ocean conservation association. I love what I do, and writing has always been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. Now I am charging ahead and making this dream into a career. 

I hope you enjoy reading the adventures as much as I enjoy writing them.
