Writing

My writing has been published in Maisonnueve Magazine, MegaphoneReader's Digest, Best Health, Hayo, the Toronto Star, SAD Mag, Ricepaper Magazine, and other publications across Canada. 

I specialize in blogging, copywriting, profiles, and reviews about lifestyle, arts and culture, food, and social justice.

Editing

Finessing prose to be clear and compelling is a puzzle I like solving over and over again. I love working with writers to express ideas and share stories. I like imagining the reader and working for them at the same time. 

As an editor, I've worked with clients such as Harbour Publishing, Caitlin Press, and Reader's Digest Canada. 

 

Communications, Marketing, & PR

Often the right message or brand is the difference between success and mediocrity. I'm passionate about developing content that connects with the right audiences to open perspectives, entertain, and inform. 

For content and digital strategy with a strong editorial backbone, call me

Design.

I learned communication design by obsessively reading magazines and acquiring an intuition for composition, typography, and information design, which I applied in the classroom and later, on the job.

I've designed websites, reports, publications, and more for organizations such as Vancouver Heritage Foundation, hua foundation and YWCA Metro Vancouver. 

 

Everything else.

I also do:

  • research and fact-checking
  • public speaking
  • nonprofit administration and governance
  • event planning 
  • photo editing
  • facilitation & strategic planning
  • fundraising
