I'm a long-time freelance writer and editor by profession as well as a print and online publication designer. I'm also an environmental and social justice advocate, running grassroots campaigns first in Vancouver and now in Victoria.

I've also researched and written in-depth reports and background papers on environmental issues. I wrote a major one: Oil and Water Don't Mix for the David Suzuki Foundation in Vancouver. This paper provided the factual basis of a successful grassroots campaign to maintain the federal and provincial moratoria on offshore oil and gas development on Canada's West Coast.

Right now, I'm very much into blogging and social network technology. I have two blogs: the somewhat neglected and Dandelion Times on ecocentrism. I also maintain an earlier portfolio web site at

I've lived in housing co-ops in the past and was active in the co-op movement, which I find to be unfortunately moribund these days. I've always wanted to be part of a media co-operative but have had no opportunity to join one.

I'd like to help start the Victoria Media Co-operative in this city.
