About Me

I was always a what-if kid. What if I fell off the edge of the earth? What if I could taste colour? What if we could all switch places just by switching shoes – actual shoes? What if I could find a job that would let me explore all the what-ifs I ever wanted? So that’s what I set out to do.

Before heading out into the real world, I got my Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree in English at the University of Western in London, Ontario. When I realized I was passionate about advertising I enrolled in the Creative Advertising program at Seneca College, School of Communication Arts.

To break into the biz, I interned at Red Rhino Communications Inc. in London, Ontario. In 2006, I started at FCB Toronto, and quickly jumped from intern, to junior, to intermediate writer, working on a range of clients like Hewlett Packard, HBC, Ontario Lottery and Gaming, Canada Post, Milk-bone, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, Kraft, TD Canada Trust, Ontario Power Authority and Purolator.

For the past three years I’ve been freelancing at various Toronto agencies, always on the hunt for new creative opportunities.
