I work as a writer, facilitator, and writing instructor.
In addition to writing work, I teach journalism to adults through SFU’s Vancity Office of Community Engagement, creative writing to undergrads at UBC, and work on freelance contracts to facilitate workshops about media engagement, narrative production, and social change.
My journalism about social issues has been published across Canada. I am currently at work on a magazine article about race and the local food movement for Maisonneuve (spring 2017), and a youth-focused publication project with Hua Foundation. In fall 2016, I am co-hosting a public talk with former Vancouver East MP Libby Davies and will present as a panelist on affordable housing for the Broadbent Institute’s BC Progress Summit.
I’m on the board of directors of the Hua Foundation, a non-profit whose mission is to engage Chinese youth with social and environmental justice work while building pride in shared heritage and cultural identity.
