Journalist, Producer and Communications Consultant
Whether it's leading marketing campaigns or crafting an article, my mission is always the same: using storytelling excellence for good.
With almost ten years of experience in journalism (including a stint as an Agony Aunt!), I cover stories of social impact in Canada, and local business news as a columnist at Ottawa Business Journal. In the UK, I worked as a print columnist, covering arts and culture.
As a content creator, I'm currently in production for a documentary film series, and a limited radio documentary series. Previously, I was the TV host and narrator of Creatorland, an award-winning documentary series, now streaming on CBC and Bell Fibe TV1, featuring the stories of Canada's diverse entrepreneurs.
As a communications consultant, I provide comprehensive content strategies, writing and editorial services, with clients in philanthropy, technology and economic development.
- From 2019-2020, I co-led SoGal Ottawa, the largest global platform for diverse entrepreneurs and investors. After hosting monthly events, myself and my co-lead took three diverse Canadian entrepreneurs to Silicon Valley for a global pitch competition, where they could attract investments and mentorship from top-tier venture capitalists. Here, one of the Ottawa entrepreneurs secured $25,000.
- I speak publicly and moderate panels. Most recently, this included a media panel at SoGal's Global Summit in San Francisco, where I interviewed leaders in tech and business.
- I'm on the Board of the Digi60 Filmmakers' Festival, Ottawa's leading professional development festival for new and emerging filmmakers.
