Brand voice is an interesting thing. I’ll never forget the day that Chris Mauro, former ed-in-chief of Surfer magazine, tracked me down at my then-job at FASHION magazine. He’d seen my work in SBC Surf (now defunct; and they still owe me a cheque), and said he wasn’t sure it was [...]
To keep to the travel theme as BCBusiness speaks to it, my story for the magazine about the West Coast Fishing Club in BC’s pristine Haida Gwaii hits it from a corporate perspective. The WCFC is a place where captains of industry conglomerate, and no doubt bonding occurs that [...]
As a writer, sometimes you get lucky and an interview turns into a conversation. (I’ve said this before on this site, so I must be pretty lucky insofar as interviewing goes.) So it went with designer Ryley O’Byrne when I interviewed her for the June issue of Chatelaine. Through whimsical patterns and image pairings, O’Byrne [...]

If you’re not a surfer or aren’t interested in surfing, there’s a good chance you haven’t read Surfer, one of the world’s longest-running surf titles. Founded in 1959 by filmmaker and creative John Severson to support his films, the magazine’s vibrant photography and wit soon came to represent the burgeoning surf culture. Through [...]
The definition of intimidation for a writer: interviewing Margaret Atwood.
Does Ms. Atwood even require introduction? Perhaps, if you aren’t from planet Earth.
This is a woman who was been shortlisted for the Booker Prize five times, winning once; shortlisted for the Governor General’s award on several occasions, winning [...]
