I began my life in Edmundston, New Brunswick, continued it in Cambridge, Ontario, lived many years in Montréal, Québec, Sevilla, Spain and, for the time being, I have settled in Madrid! I write about my life. I write about hard things I've gone through and some of my best successes (or, what I consider to be a "success"). I believe my experiences are relatable and are often things we fail to talk about with others.
Growing up, I became a bit of a loner. I was surrounded by people who only spoke English when I only spoke French. In my time alone (which you can imagine by now that this was most of the time), I discovered that books held imaginary and sometimes real worlds which fascinated me. I began to read copious amounts of books, journals, articles, blogs, anything I could get my hands on (perhaps to escape that awkward childhood loneliness I was feeling). This eventually fed my passion for knowledge. I began writing and drawing in notebooks and in time I began experimenting with words, trying to find a way to correctly express myself (in a foreign language). This activity became my obsession which remains to this day.
After completing my Bachelor of Fine Arts at Waterloo University and my Master's in Art History at Concordia University, I realized that creative writing would be an extraordinary outlet to free myself from the pressures of the world and allow for a mix of art history, social and cultural, as well as all aspects of my life to intertwine, mingle and ultimately coexist with each other in this space.
Please enjoy this site as much as I enjoy adding to it.
I gain a lot of my inspiration from experiences in my life as well as from those who surround me, their views on life, death and everything in between. Suffering from mental illness has also led me to obsessively study ample amounts of subjects/topics which also contributes to the many inspirations for my writing.
