I built my first website in 1997 (it was a fan page for my favourite band at the time) and I began writing my blog in 2004. Miss604.com has been covering all things Vancouver since 2006 and I have been contributing to various tourism blogs and magazines since 2008.

Tourism Vancouver's Inside Vancouver Blog.
What is a favourite experience being a journalist
Covering the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, traveling to Ghana for a charity campaign, and covering the 2015 Women's World Cup in Vancouver.
Why do you contribute to Snow and FestivalSeekers
I get to tell stories about unique people, places, and events that are even new to me!
What made you start a blog
I love writing and I have had a passion for online media since high school, and throughout my career. What keeps me going is that passion, the desire to share experiences and provide information that empowers others to get out and have some fun.
