Di got most of her film education the old fashioned way - by working at an independent video store (for more years than she's willing to admit). She studied scriptwriting at Algonquin College, and comedy screenwriting under SCTV scribe Dave Flaherty of Humber College. She is an official Tomatometer-approved critic for Rotten Tomatoes.
Di is a weekly film columnist for CBC Radio Ottawa's All In A Day program, a weekly film and television columnist for CBC Radio Calgary Eyeopener, and a semi-regular CBC Radio Syndicated film columnist.
She has what psychiatrists and her husband would describe as an 'unhealthy obsession' with Jeff Bridges.
