Industry Arts
Occupation Writer/Editor
Location Tofino, Vancouver Island, Canada
Introduction I'm a writer and editor from Tofino (aka Tough City, thus Tough City Writer). When I first started this blog, it was to focus on books, writing, reading, occasionally my own writing, and other subjects of questionable worth. Now, I'm expanding the scope - art, life, food, travel - whatever inspires me to get my fingers on the keyboard. For posts more specific to Tofino, check out my other blog, The Heart of Tofino, For more about my work, see
Interests Reading, long beach walks, west coast history, natural history, collage, SUP (stand up paddle boarding), hiking, ephemera, anything postal-related, trolling thrift shops for more paper crap (and books), travelling, cooking, campfires.
