"I have a multitude of diverse technological and communication skills and responsibilities ranging from front-end and CMS web development, business and consumer writing, company communication and coordination, social media and brand management, and small to large scale event planning.
Having an incredible passion for the written word, I completed an Honors Degree in Communications and Digital Culture which lead into an IT and technology-focused specialization, including computer science, digital design, and programming emphasis.
Currently, I am involved in a software development company's Marketing initiatives, and am the project manager for the company’s internal employee collaboration Intranet portal. I am also the primary stakeholder for customer evidence, frequently liaising with Sales, Microsoft, and clients to put together compelling stories that showcase my company's technological strength. I have been involved in many large-scale event planning projects, including organizing, planning, and hosting events during National Retail Federation (NRF) and Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) in the company offices. In addition, I have organized and overseen several cross-country and multi-national events.
Being an avid writer and self-proclaimed Geek, I have written for a variety of publications and organizations, namely my University newspaper, The Brock Press, as a weekly article contributor to the Humor, Game, and Careers sections. Previously working in the video game industry as technical support for Linux and Mac, I am actively involved in the Toronto Video Game community. My name is featured on several small games and applications, with the most noteworthy being the Mac version of Dragon Age 2. I have written for several Video Game websites as a journalist and game reviewer, and run a mid-sized blog which houses dozens of my own fiction and short stories."
