About me

I've made banitsa in Bulgaria. I've retraced Dom Perignon's footsteps in Champagne, France. And I've been to pretty much every Viking museum in Denmark - and tasted lots of snaps, too. When I'm not on the road, I'm in front of my computer, where I work as a food, wine and travel writer based in Calgary, Canada. My work has appeared in magazines and newspapers around the world, including The Guardian, The Globe and Mail and Westjet magazine, and I'm the syndicated weekend wine columnist for CBC Radio.
