My new website! Open-hearted + ready for you.

Hello, friends.  I’m so excited to share with you my new home on the web! Plans for this baby have been in the works for the last year, and pulling back the curtain today feels exhilarating, timely, and so right.

I invite you to take a wander through the pages.  Learn about working with me. Check out the deets on my new interview series THE NINE, and read the very first NINE interview below—with Vancouver-based writer + filmmaker Garfield Lindsay Miller.  (He gives it to us straight.)

If you like what you see, I hope you’ll share with your people, and subscribe!  That would be lovely.

Big, big thanks to:

~Ben Moore at Signal Creative for his tech + coding savvy.

~My fiance Joe for his support through my hair-splitting creative decisions on colours, fonts, and text.

~All of you reading this, for your love and interest in what I’m up to.

I’m done formatting now.  (Yay.)  It’s time to write!
