I am...


Marketing & Communications

I am a 'full-stack marketer' (definition here) with a portfolio that encompasses marketing strategy, digital marketing, public relations, graphic design, web design, copywriting, and more. I have experience in many different industries, including construction, sensor technology, post-secondary education, and financial services.

Education

I have been teaching and mentoring at the post-secondary level since 2009, with a strong focus on experiential education. I have also written extensively on topics surrounding post-secondary education, and am currently assisting with an Impact Fellowship study at the DeGroote School of Business (McMaster University).


Technology & Design

My interests span a wide range of topics, including renewable energy, vertical farming, architecture, and urban design. Although I tend to be the one marketing or selling new technologies, I also have experience with product development (particularly UI/UX design), and plan to complete an M.Arch program in the future.

Nerd fact: I was the first person (that I know of) to graduate from McMaster University with a Minor in Mathematics in addition to a Bachelor's degree in Engineering Physics & Management; chaos theory, quantum computing, and cryptography seemed like fun courses.

Writing & Speaking

My writing covers a variety of topics, but focuses on my three main passions (Marketing & Communications, Education, Technology & Design) and how they intersect. In particular, how we communicate new ideas is something I find very interesting, especially how we frame highly technical concepts for general consumption.
