From 2013-2017 I was the co-publisher of SAD Mag, an award-winning biannual publication celebrating Vancouver arts & culture. I also served as editor-in-chief from 2013-2015.
At SAD Mag, I wrote grants and built partnerships with other cultural & creative organization to increase our revenue and reach, trained volunteer staff, organized events and launch parties, and engaged dozens of artists and writers in every issue. I also fell in love with the process of creating a magazine, and am always looking to collaborate on publication projects.

As a copywriter, I've produced blog posts, newsletters, advertising copy, press kits, biographies, and social media content. My customary style is personable, humorous, and memorably detailed, but I adapt as necessary to my textual surroundings.
A great communications strategy aligns with your goals and objectives, reaches the right people, and inspires them to act. I specialize in identifying audiences, developing a clear and consistent brand voice, and creating content that is compelling, memorable, and persuasive. I also analyze and scrutinize data for refining strategy, adjusting tactics, and evaluating impacts.
