Thanks for taking the time to drop by, beautiful stranger. I’m glad you did, it gives me a chance to tell you a little about myself and what I’m doing.That’s me to the right, a photograph taken by my hugely talented friend, photographer and painter Laura Findlay.
I grew up in Ottawa, Ontario – and moved to Montreal when I was 19, takeing a crazy array of jobs to support myself while studying.
Over the years I’ve been everything from a watch-repairer to baker, kink-friendly office help to coffee-making-wage-slave, tutor to housecleaner, server to blogger, phone salesperson to copyeditor
I suppose it goes without saying that until fairly recently, I’ve been better at acquiring jobs than keeping them! It’s been the last fewyears how ever, that have beent he most fun and satisfying.
I fell in with Danny Iny at Firepole Marketing a little over two years ago, and have been working with him ever since. I found, in small business marketing, the balance between business and creativity that had eluded me through years of alternating business and liberal arts education. I did finally get some credentials last year when I completed a multi-media techniques program at Lasalle college.
A few years ago I also met my delightful husband. We got married in June of this year in a tremendously kooky ceremony and reception involving gorillas, mermaids strongmen, a one-legged piano player and potluck dinner. We now live quite happily above a highway in NDG with our cats Snoot and Supperchunks.
I’m a proud feminist, crafter, cook and strategic thinker. I love open debate about politics and social issues. I love to work hard, and to work with people with huge ideas and ambitions.
I think that there is so much happening in the world right now, both for good and ill, and being a part of it, maybe even influencing hearts and minds a little on the way is my dearest hope.
At the end of the day, if I can be, like Home Wells, of use, then I’ll think I’ve done a good job.
And now, because it’s the internet, here is a picture of cats:
