How long have you been a Vancouverite?
Since Vanier dorm days at UBC (2002), minus a long traveling stint, and two years spent living in Sydney, Australia. I moved home just before the 2010 Olympics.
Journalist at WE Vancouver newspaper (formerly known as the Westender). I write about everything from David Suzuki to Sarah McLachlan, and all the local stories in between. I also edit a weekly fashion section called Shop Talk, and a twice-monthly feature on Vancouver’s style set called It Girl (it has yet to have an It Guy, but that’s coming). I’m also the Undrudgery editor for Vancouver Is Awesome (which just won best local blog!), tracking down Vancouver’s coolest jobs and how people got them. And from time to time, I’ll book a gig and play some music. I thought for sure my set at the 2007 Maple Ridge Jazz and Blues festival, which happened to open for an undiscovered Carly Rae Jepsen, was my ticket to folk stardom. Alas.
