I’m a Toronto-based writer and step-adoptee. I work as a labour relations professional and also try to fit in time to relax in my pottery studio. I write about identity, step-adoption, and the negative impacts of family secrets. My work has appeared in Salon and The New York Times and I am currently at work on a family memoir.
