About Me

I am a graduate of the Master of Professional Communication program at Ryerson University (2012)  with years of experience in communications strategy, social media, digital marketing, audience engagement and blogging.

I’ve worked as a freelance writer with work published in Chatelaine, Terminal City Magazine, Art Threat, Shameless, and many websites.  My feature article, “The New Face of Porn”  was originally published in This Magazine, and went on to be anthologized in The Best Canadian Essays 2009 and Gendered Intersections: A Women’s and Gender Studies Primer.

I’m also the founding editor of Hey Receiver, a website that explores communication in all it’s splendor.  In addition to writing for Hey Receiver, I work on the social media, promotion and design sides of Hey Receiver, alongside a great crew of former Master of Professional Communication students.

Since August 2014, I’ve been devoting my extra time to the Community One Foundation, where I sit on the board of directors as chair of the Communications and Marketing Committee. It has been an incredible experience to serve my community with such a dedicated group of volunteers.

I’m creative and have a knack for fresh ideas.  I have a diverse set of interests and love thinking/talking/writing about a little bit of everything, with my absolute faves being community building, social justice, bikes, food, art and music.   If you’d like to learn more, to hire me or ask me to write for you, please visit the contact page.
