    About me

    With a background in community access media and media training, I’ve worked in print, broadcast radio and television and in educational media. I consider myself an artist in electronic and digital media. Born and brought up in Montreal, in Canada, my work has taken me to Toronto, Vancouver, Banff and Calgary; Inuvik, Fort Smith and Yellowknife NWT (where I currently live); Salluit, Nunavik (Arctic Quebec) and Arviat, Nunavut. I’ve been posted internationally to Beijing, China; Nassau, the Bahamas; La Paz, Bolivia; Butare, Rwanda; Chelyabinsk, Russia and Berhampur, Odisha, India. These days in Yellowknife, I’m producing live webcasts and YouTube videos of community events and blogging about Canada’s Arctic.
