Making freckled word magic since forever.

I have a way with words and dream up creative concepts like a champ.

Before moving to LA from my hometown of Toronto, I spent a good chunk of my time working on Carbonmade. It's the awesome online portfolio service that helped me whip up this very portfolio. I wrote fun as heck copy for their website, developed various marketing campaigns, and edited everything like a darn hawk.

In agency land, I worked at BIMM Direct & Digital on campaigns for Telus, Audi and Shoppers Drug Mart. On the client side of things, I wrote and managed online marketing campaigns for big Canadian brands like CBC, Chapters/Indigo and SIRIUS Canada.

My work happiness comes from writing copy and crafting editorial content that feels good. I love developing a brand's voice and style and making new ideas come to life with dev folk and designers.
