I’m a writer and editor with a Master’s degree in Journalism from the University of Western Ontario.  I love my Naramata life and want to share my passion for this slow place that quickly steals your heart. Living it to the max a partial list of things that make life interesting: Ironman athlete, open water swimmer who swam the English Channel on a relay team summer 2016 (pondering a solo effort),  training to swim the Catalina Channel with my team in 2019, baker in training, Naramata-Blend cooking class series organizer, raspberry farmer, greenhouse grower, vegetable and flower gardener, wine and food writer, drinker and eater, avid reader, movie nut, photographer, collector of kitchenalia and antiques, traveller and lover of all things that the Okanagan Valley offers its lucky residents.

Carpe Diem is our moto! Seize the hell out of the idea, the project or the layered cake…succeed or fail, that cake will get eaten anyway.
