I just love intriguing projects, don’t you? There’s a challenge to be had, one that demands curiosity, creativity and perseverance to pull together an awesome result.
If you have a project that needs tackling, whether its to build engagement with your brand, design a better website or other collateral, develop a communications strategy and get help implementing it, or even to tell a great story…. you’re in the right place!
In broad strokes, I’m a versatile, strategic and practical creative who isn’t afraid to tackle something new and always makes sure things get done well. With over 25 years experience as a professional communicator, I’ve worked on a wide range of projects, regularly serving as an advisory for strategic projects and planning, providing change management expertise for large-scale software launches, and developing tools and services to support a culture of professionalism and excellence.
My passion is design, story, and making a genuine emotional connection with the audience, whether that’s customer experience, member engagement, readers or viewers. I see things from a high-level perspective in terms of brand and desired outcomes, but also at a practical ground-level. I’m confident in building the plan and executing it, hands-on as necessary.
As well, I’ve explored many different ways of telling stories. I’ve written for stage, had my screenplay produced on screen for the television series Neon Rider, and in the computer games Missing and Sleeping Giant. I have also authored several comics. Rip Current is my first comic, published online by Zeros 2 Heroes media after having been voted a winner in the first-ever Canada: Comic Creation Nation project, sponsored by Telefilm. My second, Traveller, is included in the Manga Memoirs Volume 1 anthology, also published by Zeros 2 Heroes media. Then, I was hired on contract to write a comic in conjunction with an ARG (alternate realty game) called Pashanata / The Dream Detectives, which was launched at the 2010 New York Comic Con. And, I wrote one section of a comic published in conjunction with the television series, Continuum.
I’m currently working on a couple of YA fiction projects, a chapter book series and an idea for an virtual reality game. And just to keep things interesting, I’ve started an indie publishing company called Bright Green Books.
As you can see, there’s a huge range of projects that I find intriguing. If you’re looking for someone with a mix of professional, strategic communications, who thinks like a designer and loves storytelling, I’d be excited to connect. Be sure to reach out!
