Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve

A veteran journalist based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, I've  freelanced (as Wordsink.ca) since 1994, after more than 20 years as a reporter in newspapers and in TV news. (Check my Bio for details.) I love soft adventure, history, nature, and cultural travel, and specialize in Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean.

I'm also a photographer (check the Photofiles here for samples or search my Alamy images). Many of the more obscure spots I cover aren't photographed much, and it seems to make editors' lives easier if I can provide top-notch images with the copy. (I shoot with the Sony full-frame A99, and use a Sony Nex 7 as my second camera.)
