Writing

writing_graphics v1-03.png

I have over 20 years' experience writing for TV, film, print, radio and stage. My career as a writer started with satirical songs for CBC Radio, which led to ten years of TV comedy writing in Canada and Singapore (see sidebar), and eventually stage and print.

 

A member of the Writers Guild of Canada, I've written and/or developed more comedy TV shows and feature films than I can remember, including two of my own half-hour comedy series developed with CTV and CBC. My screenwriting work is now focused on my own projects. Most of my past produced television experience can be found here.

My award-nominated humour and nonfiction writing has appeared in numerous Canadian magazines and newspapers (sample Articles, below). A recent article I wrote for The Walrus magazine led to my current collaboration with singer/songwriter, Deena Kamm, on a main stage musical (see Musical).

Articles

Here's some stuff I've written for newspapers and magazines (most links to my old articles can no longer be found). I'd love to keep writing for print, but most publications no longer pay you enough for a small Tim Horton’s double-double—with the exception of The Walrus, one of Canada’s few remaining literary gems.
