I've been a teacher of English as a foreign language living alone in South Korea since 2007. I have been a professional editor on the side for about three years, and I am studying writing and editing these days, too. I was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada. First and foremost, I've been an activist all my life. Though a French major, I was an ESL instructor, government program assistant before I studied to earn a Master's degree in anthropology and work at my university.Though I have done plenty of academic papers, I have been steadily writing non-academic non-fiction and fiction since 2008. To relax, I like exercise including hiking, as well as good conversation, eating and stories.
