Oh, hello! I'm Cherise, and I'm a journalist and professional writer based in Atlantic Canada– Saint John, New Brunswick to be exact.

What I do: I'm the associate editor and staff writer at Huddle Today, an online business magazine that covers New Brunswick and the Maritimes. Previously, I've worked for CBC New Brunswick, The Canadian Press, The Telegraph-Journal and a few other great places.

I also host a weekly music/vinyl podcast and blog called Strange Grooves with my friend Cait Milberry. We review the records we love and chat with, musicians, music lovers and record collectors in the community and beyond. Since launching in September, Strange Grooves has grown to become a online platform to elevate people's love of music. We've since added two additional flagship shows and have a growing number of blog contributors. 

Where I’m from: I was born in raised in Saint John, New Brunswick, the gritty, charming, industrial port city many people love to hate. 

What I love: Bob Dylan, beer, vinyl, nachos, live music, podcasts and soaker tubs.
