Are you looking for a writer that will deliver well-researched material on time and is pleasant to work with, despite the said deadline? Drop me a line via e-mail or Twitter.
What I write:
Feature articles on various topics, mostly environment, parenting, health and fitness. That being said, I am (no longer) afraid of tackling new topics. Because life is that way.
Web content, whatever the need might be.
Books (dreaming, hoping, dusting the manuscripts in the meantime): Children books and non-fiction (memoir, personal growth)
Getting personal (answering the why question): I studied Biochemistry in university, then I crossed an ocean and continued with a Masters. When I finished playing full-time scientist, I worked in a lab for a while and also started teaching specialty topics at a post-secondary school in Vancouver. The birth of my first child marked my return to writing. I wanted to be there for him, to raise him and do something purposeful career-wise. Ditto for little brother who came along four years later.
Writing has never been really foreign to me. As soon as I learned to write… Well, I wrote. Poems, journals, stories. I aspired to write for a living but was told it is impractical. Science won. Writing was behind during university years, but, just like a faithful dog (and just as non-judgmental), it returned and we’re in this together for the long haul.
