I'm a full-time professional writer and copywriter with a background in journalism and digital media.
I provide a roster of local and international clients with a range of freelance writing services, and currently work as a full-time in-house copywriter with Best Buy Canada.
My academic background consists of a BA in Political Science and History from Simon Fraser University—where I specialized in international relations, conflict theory and contemporary political philosophy—and a certificate in New Media Journalism, also from SFU.
Immediately following graduation I began covering the Vancouver Canucks and the NHL for the Vancouver Observer, as well as local-interest news and politics for Vancouver Weekly.
In 2013 I started my professional copywriting career, working closely with the San Francisco-based travel startup Peek.com, which was selected as one of TIME's Top 50 Websites of the Year in 2014. I quickly began picking up and retaining clients from Vancouver to LA to London through word-of-mouth referrals and recommendations, and haven't looked back.
Today, I retain a small stable of select clients, delivering a range of copywriting, content writing, and social media writing services.
Outside of work—when I'm not writing about the best ethnic food trucks in Midtown or how to get the most of a sunny summer weekend in Paris—I can often be found debating (and saving) the future of the world (one pint at a time) at the local pub. If I'm not there, I'm probably in a pit of despair, thinking and over-obsessing about my thoroughly mismanaged fantasy hockey teams.
If you want to light my heart on fire and win my affection for the rest of time, feed me Guinness.
