About Me

I grew up in a tiny Newfoundland village called Happy Adventure. People said it was named by pirates. So, like any good child of the 80s, I spent my time imagining I was a Goonie. 

When I Ieft Happy Adventure I went to Memorial University and spent years learning about Biology, Psychology and Education.

After that I started a blog. You might remember me, I started writing Product of Newfoundland about 15 years ago.  It became a bigger deal than I’d ever anticipated.  When it started to swallow my life, I retired the project.

But... I’m back at it again. This time it’s different though. No life-swallowing sense of obligation and a little more emphasis on me and my place in the world.

These days, my geographical place is Gander, NL and when I'm not writing, you can find me tweeting Newfoundland trivia (@NfldFactory), listening to Madonna records and working with kids.

My team includes a partner of 18 years and two enthusiastically cuddly Labrador retrievers -- Cooper and Murphy.
