Helping good people & organizations tell their stories
I'm a Toronto-based writer and communications strategist.
I've worked as a reporter, an editor, and in senior public relations roles for major non-profits.
What I'm up to lately
I ghostwrite good things for good people and companies. You'll love what you read, but you'll never know I was there (my nickname is "Spooky" for a reason).
I've recently taken on the role of Director of Marketing & Communications for a provincial advocacy organization in the life sciences space. I'm giving their brand serious traction -- in months, as opposed to years.
I write, edit, and consult on communications strategy for corporate clients through Toronto-based marketing firm Communicable Inc. Happy customers include Ryerson's DMZ, Wealthsimple, Symbility Intersect, and City of Toronto's StartUpHERE hub.
I have a book, Dating Vandalized, coming out in early 2017. I wrote it in first person for someone who isn't me. Her review: "It's like you're in my head." Yeah, that's a thing I can do.
I write about love and relationships. You can read my work on my Medium page.
THE BIGGEST LIMITATION OF BEING HUMAN IS THE INABILITY TO JUMP INSIDE ANOTHER PERSON'S CONSCIOUSNESS -- TO SEE THE WORLD AS THEY SEE IT, TO BE INSIDE THEIR STORY.
I believe in sharing what I think and feel deeply.
I believe in working with good people. I only help bring positive things into the world. There's enough of the other stuff.
I believe that companies need to hire creative people to produce creative work. I'm passionate about storytelling, and that's why I'm great at what I do.
