I have long been fascinated with the intersection of art, media and technology.
Armed with a Computing and Information Science degree from the University of Guelph and a passion for creating captivating online content, I have enjoyed using my technical and editorial skills in a vast array of settings, including NGOs, community radio, alternative newspapers and public broadcasters.
My other passion is music, and I have a long history of concert promotion in Toronto and Guelph, and run Out of this Spark, a somewhat dormant Toronto based independent record label.
For over a decade I have worked at the CBC, Canada’s national public broadcaster as a digital producer in a variety of roles in both entertainment and news programming. Currently I work as part of the social media team in the national newsroom.
I’m also a part-time professor at George Brown College teaching a class on Social Networks.
Some of my specialties include : Interactive production, content development, programming, search engine optimization, video streaming, video editing, digital photography, social media coordination, audio production, audio editing, writing, researching and editing.
Some of my other hobbies include moderately competitive cycling, home brewing and photography. I was born in Belleville grew up in the Ottawa Valley went to school and lived in Guelph, and have called the west end of Toronto home for over ten years.
