I'm a freelance writer and sailor, living in the wilds of northern Canada on the BC-Alaska border.

In 2018, I wrapped up a three year trip, sailing my 35-foot floating home from Vancouver to Mexico to Australia. After getting married in Mexico, my husband and I set out across the Pacific, spending 26 days alone at sea for our honeymoon (yes, we're still married!).

In between sail changes and seasickness, I've written for publications including The New York Times, The Globe and Mail, Canadian Geographic, The Tyee, Cottage Life, BoatUS, Cruising World, SAIL, and Sailing World. I'm a contributing editor at BoatUS magazine and Good Old Boat magazine. I also run a website on millennial sailing culture:

Up north I spend time backcountry skiing, skijoring (think dog sledding with skis), and taking orders from my two Siberian huskies.
