Me Watching Frozen Fenway 2I am not an activist, but I am an author who covers the intersection between hockey  and social issues.

I am co-authoring Game Misconduct, a book about fixing hockey’s toxic culture.

My work has appeared in The Globe and Mail, PEN Transmissions, espnW and more. I have been interviewed by several outlets, inclduing the CBC. My essay, Hockey is For Everyone, was listed as a notable in the 2019 Best American Sportswriting anthology. My piece No, This is Not a Watershed Moment for Hockey, was named a notable in the 2020 edition.

The past decade of covering hockey — from boys and girls hockey to professional and collegiate women’s and men’s hockey — taught that hockey can heal and it can hurt. From observations and my personal expereince as a survivor of sexual assault and a woman of color, I learned just how unwelcoming hockey can be to minorities. I’ve made it my life’s mission to make hockey a better place for minorities by drawing attention to its flaws and how to fix them.
