Senior Creative at Poke

I've known I wanted to write in some capacity ever since my first story 'The Dog Who Loved To Take Baths' was very well received at my 3rd grade parent-teacher night.

Since then I've written for a school paper, a popular entertainment weekly and a couple of online magazines. I also wrote death reports for a while, which was exactly what it sounds like.

I can still be found writing until further notice.

I'm constantly striving to learn more, do more and be more – in both work and life equally. I'm inherently a creative person but have key strengths that make me business-minded as well. I'm a critical thinker, I enjoy finding solutions to existing and undiscovered problems and, above all, I love observing the world around me.

I’ve worked on brands from a variety of sectors including CPG (Church & Dwight, Kraft, Del Monte U.S.), refreshments (Magnum, Tropicana Canada & UK), retail (Target, WINNERS, Sleep Country Canada), beauty (eos, Dove), telecom (Cogeco, Virgin Mobile), healthcare (Mt.Sinai), financial (American Express, BMO), QSR (New York Fries, Tim Hortons) and not-for-profit (Interval House, IFEX).
