About Me

I am a traveller, writer and photographer based out of Québec City, Canada.

In 2010 I left my career in retail management to pursue a lifestyle of travel. Over the years, I have explored the streets and markets of Southeast Asia, ventured across Africa (from Kenya to Cape Town), wandered the cobbled streets of old cities like Warsaw and Edinburgh, and eaten local foods until I thought I would burst.

Seven years later, I have set-up a home base in Québec City, Canada.

While I still travel, I also run a couple travel sites: Urban Guide Québec and Urban Guides.

Current Projects
  • Guidebook on Québec City
  • Guidebook on Îles de la Madeleine
intro to Guidebook projects
  • Explore neighbourhoods outside of the old city, shop at local boutiques, eat a chef-run restaurants and sleep in locally owned hotels. The locals are what make Québec City feel like a village, instead of a provincial capital!

  • A set of islands connected to Price Edward Island by ferry, Îles de la Madeleine are a hub of Québec culture. Discover culinary delights, squish your toes into the sand, devour unhealthy amounts of seafood, go in search of kitchen parties and more!
