About Me

I was always a what-if kid. It drove my mom crazy. What if we could all taste colour? What if I could switch places with a monkey? (One of my sister’s friends actually owned a monkey – true story).  What if I fell off the edge of the earth, would I fall infinitely? What if I could find a job that would let me explore all the what-ifs I ever wanted? So, I set out to make that a reality.

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.

Interning at Red Rhino Communications Inc. in London, Ontario opened the first door for me. Then from 2006-2014, FCB Toronto gave me the opportunity to jump from intern, to junior, to intermediate copywriter, 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 five years I’ve been freelancing at various Toronto agencies, always on the hunt for new creative opportunities.
