Welcome to my website! If you’re here, it’s probably because you’re in the market for a copywriter. Or perhaps you’re in need of a sizzling ad campaign, or a smoothly curated ghostwriting service. Then again, maybe you’re simply looking for more information about my literary projects. Either way, you’re in the right place.
My copywriting clients are many and various. I’ve worked for academic institutions, including the University of Toronto and Ryerson University. I’ve also helped signal-boost and troubleshoot for the healthcare sector in an ad copy and copywriting capacity. I’m especially proud to count The Hospital for Sick Children and Altima Healthcare among my clients in this critical sector.
I am a member of the Writers Union of Canada and fiction editor at Broken Pencil Magazine. I am also a two-time recipient of the Ontario Arts Council Writer's Works in Progress Grant, (2013, 2016) and a recipient of the Ontario Arts Council Writers' Reserve (2015). My debut novel, Mooncalves, was published in 2019 to wide acclaim. Media outlets such as The Globe and Mail and the Toronto Star turned in positive reviews. The book has been nominated for the 2020 Amazon Canada First Novel Award.
My own literary adventure began some time before that, though; I have been publishing fiction, nonfiction, and poetry since 2010. A notable digital fiction project from this period, I Have to Tell You, was written with the support of multiple grants from the Ontario Arts Council in 2014. It was mentioned and reviewed in The Guardian, Publisher's Weekly, and The L.A. Review of Books.
I hold an Honours Bachelor’s degree in English and Women’s Studies from the University of Toronto (2013). My undergraduate thesis, titled “You Hear Funny Things,” was awarded a Writer’s Works in Progress Grant from the Ontario Arts Council (2013). I built on this work for my subsequent Master’s thesis, graduating in 2016.
