Her five years of TV directing ride well on this strong base of experience. She has produced numerous short pieces for Vision's Spirit Connection. She was field producer on a 13 part series on WTN, Spirtual Journey, executive producer, Barbara Barde, Upfront Entertainment.

She has also written arts and travel features for various publications including The New York Times and The Globe and Mail. Her book, Mysterious Islands, Lynx Images, 1999, received high praise.

Her documentary concept, Black Madonna: Transforming the Dark, in development with Vision TV, led to a collaboration with the music ensembles, La Nef and Toronto Consort in April 2001 in the concert In Search of the Black Madonna, performed at Toronto's Trinity St. Paul's, broadcast on CBC Radio.
