I had the pleasure of interviewing Jennifer Keesmaat, chief planner and executive director of the City of Toronto for Tourism Toronto’s tourist publication Toronto magazine. This three-page feature article was about five ways the city is leading in sustainability, which includes some urban revitalization projects that have become tourism destinations—Evergreen Brick Works, The Distillery Historic District, etc. My bio was featured on the Contributors page.

Canadian Cycling magazine: MTB in Bruce County and The Red Hook Crit

For the August/September issue of Canadian Cycling, I got to write two very interesting articles. The first was about a mountain biking trip I took through Bruce County. I got to ride four different trail networks going all the way up to Tobermory. The second article was about how Brooklyn’s Red Hook Crit can be linked back to the “alley cat” races in Toronto (which was also a cover story). Read more »

Towards the end of June (2016), a post about Guardian Canada Week appeared in my Facebook feed. The Cities section featured content about five different cities across Canada.

#MyHamilton: 2015 posts for The Outdoor Explorer

I moved back to Hamilton in 2011 (I lived here for four years while I went to McMaster University in the 90s) and my husband and I still find ourselves telling each other how much we love it here. It happens when we spot a rare buck on the rail trail or take a hike to see the fall leaves. And I’m always telling people what a hip and happening city it is. Read more »
