I have been an adult literacy educator for 20 years. I have written various books and web-based content on various topics including building capacity in not-for-profit organizations, and using digital and social media technologies to teach and learn. I've developed content and facilitated diverse types of online training since the internet was in its infancy. I'm an active user of social media and see its benefits for learning, communication, community engagement and for making the world a better place.
I am a passionate gardener, with a special interest in wildflowers. I grew up with a deep love of nature, woodland walks and canoeing. I enjoy photography, writing and cooking. I'm an active volunteer at my church and the local soup kitchen. I grew up in northern Ontario and cannot really imagine life without a nice hot sauna and the sound of loons calling on the lake.
