I’m a freelance writer and librarian currently living in Montreal, Quebec.

In my previous life as a librarian in international schools, I lived in the Czech Republic, Colombia, the Bahamas, Egypt, Kuwait and Germany. I’ve also done shorter stints in Switzerland, Italy and Spain.

I write about topics as varied as books, reading and censorship; flamenco dance in Spain; skiing in the Alps; Greek Orthodox history in Turkey; Jewish culture in Italy, and animal-friendly/cruelty-free travel, among others. My work has been published by BBC Travel, the Globe and Mail, the Boston Globe, the Toronto Star, Fodor’s and the Vancouver Sun.
