My name is Marian, and I am a resident of Montreal. I was raised on a farm in the interior of British Columbia, before attending McGill University. I built a newsweekly called the Mirror, worked at CBC TV and radio before building kids’ science programs. After obtaining an Environmental Biology degree to be a better science writer, I began two young biology experiments of my own: my kids. I built science outreach programs for McGill University, before spending a year abroad in Taiwan and New Zealand.
