Toula Drimonis

Toula Drimonis is a Montreal based freelance writer, editor, and translator, who worked as a News Director for over a decade before deciding she wanted to strike out on her own and dabble in a variety of projects closer to her heart.
She has a love for Leonard Cohen and New Orleans that borders on the obsessive, and thinks that life without coffee, music, good books and good wine would be a questionable affair.
Her freelance written work has appeared in The Tyee, Huffington Post, PolicyMic, Divine.ca, J-Source, and Le Journal de Montréal. She has worked on TV, and now is a frequent collaborator on CJAD, Montreal's #1 English talk radio.
She's inquisitive, loves debating, and -- much to her mom's chagrin-- extremely foul-mouthed.
An ardent feminist and self-professed political junkie, she keeps close tabs on the news and likes to call out bullshit.
She has strong opinions. She likes to share them.
