  • The University of Ottawa’s Professional Development Institute
  • Ottawa’s Performance Management Consultants
  • The University of North Dakota’s space studies department (also my alma mater)
  • Carleton University’s journalism department (also my alma mater)
  • The University of Ottawa’s communications department
  • La CitĂ© collĂ©giale’s journalism and English as a second language programs.
  • Private consultations

Topics I cover:

  • Technical writing for beginning to advanced students
  • How to get over your fear of writing
  • How to write about topics you enjoy
  • How to organize yourself for professional success
  • Space exploration history and current affairs
