I’m a writer and illustrator from Toronto. I also draw a webcomic called SORROWBACON. I use this blog and my YouTube channel to document what I learned about writing from both the process and from books, TV shows, and films. I also post short fiction, poetry, illustrations, and random thoughts.
I graduated with an Honors Business Administration degree from Western University and put my creative pursuits on hold to work in the business world. Then I realized that I couldn’t be happy unless I was doing what I truly loved, so in 2016, I threw myself completely into what used to be my hobbies and have been challenging myself to grow as a writer and artist ever since.
My current goals include:
- Finish (and submit) my novel.
- Finish my illustration portfolio.
- Continue to improve my writing and illustrating.
Lots more learnings to come. Thanks for coming on the journey!
