I was born in New Brunswick, Canada. At the age of seventeen I had to break free from the chains of the small community in which I was raised and fled to study at St. Thomas University in Fredericton, NB. There I studied Criminology and Sociology. After leaving STU, I attended grad school at Saint Mary's University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I quickly learned that academia was far too restrictive for my tastes, and left after completing my coursework. My next step was managing a clothing store in Oakville, Ontario for a popular Canadian clothing chain named LeChateau. There I came into my own in fashion, managing, marketing and merchandising.

Wanting to accomplish much more in my life, I decided to pursue a career as a freelance writer. I now live in Kansas City where I am a slave to my PC, a professed news and politics junkie, and a lover of all things pop culture.

My dream; to publish books and write for a living!

Canadian winter? And anything on TrendHunter.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Spending ridiculous amounts of time online.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
The community and the opportunity to be part of something so unique.
What is your favorite trend?
At the moment, anything Lady Gaga related. But that's subject to change.
