Hi friends and welcome to my website!
I am an award-winning Canadian journalist and I have published thousands of articles in newspapers, magazines, and internationally syndicated websites. These days my writing focus is travel, social justice issues, and veganism. I have also written about parenting, health, and children’s rights.
My articles have been published in The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Eater, Travel + Leisure, Mental Floss, Yahoo, SheKnows, Metro News, The Toronto Star, Wheels, Today’s Parent Magazine, The Canadian Jewish News, WestJet Magazine, Sierra Magazine, Dreamscapes, The Jewish Advocate, Travel Life Magazine, Rodale’s Organic Life, CAA Magazine, Eat Drink Travel Magazine, Metroland Media, The Loop, Farmers’ Almanac, People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals, and many more.
I became vegetarian when I was seven years old the day I discovered cows were killed for food. I am now vegan and raising a vegan son. I am also an animal advocate – which means I do my best to speak up for those that have no voice. I became the voice for animals when I was 12 and refused to dissect frogs in my school classroom. That was also the year I began petitioning major cosmetics companies to stop testing their products on animals; I became vocal against the horrors of the fur industry; I stopped wearing leather and wool; and I did my best to only purchase and use cruelty free products.
I will never be silent when animals are suffering.
I got my start in travel writing at The Toronto Star over a decade ago where I worked as a regular contributor for several years. I took a five year break from writing to raise my son Noah and get a second degree from York University in Toronto, this one in Children’s Rights (because why only have one degree you don’t use?). But as soon as Noah could wheel his own luggage through the airport I started traveling with him and writing about our adventures. Within travel I specialize in family adventures, luxury resorts, road trips, spa wellness getaways, vegan cuisine, and humane eco-friendly tourism.
I have lived in New York City and Los Angeles when I worked as an actor, and I currently reside in Toronto with Noah, our two rescue cats, and one adorable rescued hamster.
I hope my stories inspire you to travel the world spreading love, compassion, and kindness to every person and animal you meet.
