I have a BA (English) from the University of Toronto and I have
continued to take courses on writing, editing, desktop publishing,
HTML and web-related programs, and wine. I have also given lectures
on both editing and wine.
My writing and editing work is focused on wine
and wine-related subjects. Click here
to see some examples. I went back to London in November 2002 to
take an intensive course at the Wine
and Spirits Education Trust, known internationally
as the Independent
Wine Education Guild. I completed the Advanced level in
Toronto in 2004. Here is my certificate.
I am working towards my Diploma and I regularly attend wine events
in Toronto and Niagara. I have also visited wineries in the Okanagan
Valley in British Columbia, the Napa Valley in California, Bordeaux
and Languedoc in France, and Rioja, Ribero del Duero and Rias Baixas
in Spain. I am a member of the Wine
Writers' Circle of Canada.
