I have worked on a broad assortment of books, reports, papers, blogs and magazines. My range extends from textbooks to cookbooks, reports on the internet to teachers' guides, marketing materials for law firms, and academic papers on global governance and international relations. In recent years I have worked on books on Canadian foreign policy, the global governance of climate change and health sovereignty in Africa, as well as reports on labour and development and on non-communicable disease.
From 1998 until September 2017 I was the production manager for the Literary Review of Canada, a 32-page magazine published 10 times a year. This kept me in touch with public policy, social and cultural issues in Canada and beyond.
Over an even longer period, I have been working with Professor John Kirton and serving as the executive director of the G7 and G20 Research Groups and the BRICS Research Group based at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at Trinity College in the University of Toronto. I have developed an expertise in global summitry, and you can watch a little video of me talking about our G7 and G20 work at an event organized by the Global Governance Project held at the House of Commons in London, England, in July 2018. The GGP is a partnership between these research groups and GT Media, and together we produce special "background publications" for each G7 and G20 summit. Our latest project was a special publication on universal health coverage, produced with the support of the World Health Organization, called Health Is A Political Choice.
Along with my colleagues and friends Janet MacMillan, Etty Payne, Katherine Trail, Kelly Lamb and Martin Payne, I am a member of Editing Globally, an international collective of editorial professionals.
I'm based in Toronto, Canada, but I travel all over the place. I have been a member of Editors' Canada since I became a freelance editor, sometime around 1990.
