I’m a freelance journalist and media consultant.
There’s much more to impactful communication than simply stringing some words together.
For more than 20 years, I’ve honed my craft and gained experience as a flexible writer who’s just as comfortable researching and writing a feature magazine story as I am carrying a press release from concept to pitch.
Over my two decades in media and communication, I’ve been a corporate spokesman, election strategist, editor, reporter, designer, and photographer.
Thousands of my stories have been published over the years in major daily newspapers, magazines, and digital platforms. I’ve reviewed video games for national newspapers; profiled breweries, wineries, and cannabis cultivators; reported on climate change (back in the ’90s before it was hot); and knocked on doors at too many crime scenes.
I’m also a skilled editor, from handling copy at the national newswire level to designing daily newspaper pages.
My experience goes beyond just news to the other side of the microphone, as a spokesperson. I was the lead communications advisor for FortisBC’s electric smart meter rollout. I’ve advised on provincial and federal elections. And I’ve built up social media presence from zero to thousands.
I even write for fun, including music and short stories.
In 2018, I founded the oz., a cannabis media project that has produced seven print magazines (three distributed nationally), as well as a popular weekly email newsletter.
