Staff Profiles

Michael Thomas

Michael Thomas is the founder of Grayowl Point and is currently teaching English in South Korea. He has a non-genre-specific love of Canadian music. He is known to go on binges of bluegrass music (usually triggered by hearing Trampled by Turtles’ “Wait So Long”) and will talk endlessly about his love for Jon Hamm, comic books, the podcast Comedy Bang! Bang! and the Toronto Blue Jays.

Laura Stanley

Laura Stanley is a freelance writer based in Toronto and editor of Grayowl Point. When not here or writing elsewhere, Laura is under a pile of books, drinking tea, or crying about British television.

Anna Alger

Hi everyone, I’m Anna. I am a freelance writer and student working towards my BA in Calgary. I have long been a passionate supporter of both Canadian music and theatre. My other interests include various environmental and political issues, volunteering, and travelling. You can find me here.

Chris Matei

Chris Matei credits his interest in music of any kind to a childhood in which he was continually exposed to Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, the Tragically Hip, and Weird Al Yankovic. A former co-editor of Diatribe magazine, he enjoys coffee and riding bikes at high speeds, and once wrote an undergraduate final paper on the work of Wes Anderson. He lives and works in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Eleni Armenakis

Eleni is an arts and entertainment critic, of sorts, with a mild fanaticism for all things Canadian. Currently based in Ottawa, she’s always planning A Great Canadian Roadtrip and taking recommendations for destinations.

Kaitlin Ruether

Kaitlin is writer of many things, some of which include plays and short fiction. She lives on the West Coast, and sometimes in the Prairies, and once on the Canadian Shield. She is known for rambling about the collective Canadian identity, compulsively needing music playing at all times, and loving David Bowie a lot. She also manages stages, plays the bass, and eats bagels. Sometimes in that order.

Erik Sedore

Erik lives in Toronto and has a job where he gets to listen to music most of the day, for which he should be more grateful. He’s a songwriter who once performed in full make-up and costume as The Lizard from Spiderman. If you see him at a show, he might be the only one dancing, or the only one not. It depends how he’s feeling, you know?
