I’m a writer and radio producer from Toronto who’s been published and broadcast in Canada, Barbados, Nigeria and a few wacky places in between. I get super jazzed about content that smashes cultures high and low and new and old, eating (and writing about) all kinds of foods, and strumming bluegrass Madonna covers on my beloved banjo. Find out more about my work and travels on my website , Twitter , or Tumblr. Find out more about the salsa I just spilled all over myself by examining my spicy laundry.
