Born in Singapore, my family moved to Manitoulin Island in Canada when I was two.
My first published piece was a Halloween story for the town paper at age eight.
A moment to remember.
A move to Toronto at 14 offered me the occasion to be all that I could be.
After receiving an English degree and a post-graduate in Corporate Communications,
real-world training came in the form of contracts. But the real fun began with the
launch of my communications company in 1997. A quick preamble to becoming
a well-rounded writer.
A world trip in 2000 landed me in Brussels in 2001 and London in 2007. I revelled in the
world of advertising with the likes of Ogilvy, McCann Erickson, and Draft Karamba. My
clients included Opel, Chiquita and Concerto. TAO, BIAC, and Shurgard. Robert Half
International, Boston Scientific and SN Brussels Airlines. And Komatsu, MRI and Sharp.
Adaptability sums up my life. And my work. For a wordsmith, it's a handy skill to have.
It allowed me to do some pretty neat things. For example, Bridgestone Europe's
website and EAN International's 25 th anniversary book. Travel books for Fodor's
Travel Guides and communications for a Member of Provincial Parliament in Canada.
I am now a world citizen, working in Europe and North America.
