check out some of my work
In 2014, Chris De La Rosa's cookbook of Caribbean delicacies was awarded the Gourmand World Cookbook Award for Best Foreign – International Cuisine Book in English Canada. It was an honour in which I shared as his editor.
As part of social media strategist Mark McKay's team, I create content for sites such as the one pictured here. Additionally, I have worked, independent of Mark, for clients in fields as varied as brand consulting, health and wellness, the performing arts, fashion and music.
As a senior content creator at Centennial College, I am responsible for the school's entire database of programs and corresponding print materials. My copy writing is a key component to my client's success. Since 2009, I have also been a content developer, blogger and editor for other projects within the institution's marketing and communications department.
Anthony Anderson (pictured), Lady Gaga and Drake are among the A-list celebrities I interviewed as a contributer to HOLR magazine and editor-in-chief of pop culture publication CreamWorld magazine. I have honed my ability as a versatile interviewer by speaking with these and other celebrities such as Good Charlotte and Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas.
I am a journalist whose published work dates back to 2003. My ability to identify, pitch and execute stories people want to read has been demonstrated many times. One example is this 2014 story about "waist training," a fad that continues today.
I work with Metro News and Toronto Star clients whose ad packages include advertorial content. Since 2015, I have worked with and created content for more than 70 clients, including The University of Toronto, The University of Calgary, Simon Fraser University, Pet Valu, BRP (a world leader in motorized recreational vehicles and powersports engines) and SAP (a global leading enterprise software provider).
Communication documents I have worked on include press releases, biographies, media kits, newsletters, internal memos, resumes and cover letters. Some of my most extensive communication work was for MuchMusic Award-nominated artist Harvey Stripes, who as a result was featured on popular sites such as vice.com, complex.com, xxlmag.com and thesource.com.
