Experienced public speaker, available to talk to groups and associations about editors and editing.


I’m an award-winning editor/publisher with two decades of experience in academic, culture and non-profit sectors. I’ve worked with high-profile clients such as the Art Canada Institute, the Toronto International Film Festival and Canadian Art, where I was co-publisher and editor-in-chief from 2016 to 2019. I’ve helped academics at Concordia, University of Toronto, The New School and more on dissertations, book manuscripts and journal articles. I’ve juried grants and prizes for Creative Capital, the National Magazine Awards and the Canada Council. I’ve conceptualized and facilitated large, successful publishing projects and fundraising initiatives. I’m known for developing and finessing content that’s clear, accurate and compelling.
