Making freckled word magic since forever.

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

As far as career highlights, 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 site. I wrote fun 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.

Lately I've churned out delightful voice & tone guides (my fave!), written hero copy that significantly bumped conversion rates and polished design blog copy until good and shiny. The mix is fun but I'm ready to put all of my energy back into one stellar brand, product or service.

Making new ideas come to life online with dev folk and designers is a joy so let's hop to it together!
