I have done research on personality, psychological development, cultural evolution, and film content, with two published academic papers (see below), and one unpublished book. I also write screenplays, leaning towards family-friendly fantasy. (No sales yet.)
For fun, I like to explore new places and new cultures. Two of the most powerful experiences in my life involved crossing the country on the bus and starting over in a completely new environment: Ottawa to Vancouver in 1998 and Vancouver to Montreal in 2010.
I'm constantly fascinated by what makes people tick and how cultures work. My greatest passion as a child was mythology, and in a way, that's what I'm still studying. And learning to create now, as well.
I no longer own the blouse in the photo. But that's still my hair.

I was born and raised in Ottawa, Canada. I have also lived in Edmonton, Calgary, Pembroke (Ontario), and Vancouver, worked in northern Ontario, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland in summer jobs, travelled almost the entire TransCanada highway at least once in each direction, and am currently living in Montreal.
I've also studied massage and gone to Witchcamp.
