I’ve grown quite accustomed to divvying my time between Toronto and Los Angeles. My partner resides there and, as long distance relationships often go, you both split your life in two to create parallel lives together. Both places feel like home to me in very different ways. In Toronto, I’m the workaholic that I’ve spent years building myself up to be. In Los Angeles, my desires are to eat, explore and see as many new things as possible. The idea of being able to hop into a car and drive across the state, getting glimpses at vastly different cultures in … Continue reading

field trip piece thumbnail ILLUSTRATIONS & INDIE88: FIELD TRIP ’16 RECAP

Earlier this spring, a colleague tagged me in a Bunz Trading Zone post looking for an illustrator to work on a project with Indie88, an indie-rock radio station based here in TO.

Flash forward to last week, when She Does The City asked me to do some media coverage with mega-talented photographer Yuli Scheidt at Field Trip Music & Arts Festival.

While packing up for my big move, I uncovered a giant jar of glitter at the bottom of a tub filled with forgotten art supplies. I had so many questions. Where did it come from? When did … Continue reading

A word to the wise: I’m vegan. I also have Celiac Disease — an autoimmune disorder that means if I try to eat or even go anywhere near gluten, baaaaaaad things will happen to my body. That being said, every recipe I post on here will be 100% vegan and gluten-free. Also sesame-free, cranberry-free and amaranth-free because my immune system is a cruel joke. I started Vegan Girlfriend with my best friends Aine and Alex in early 2014. We wanted a project to keep ourselves busy while in school, and now we have a stupid amount of followers on Instagram (I love each … Continue reading
