Great stories make great content. But without the right channels to reach an audience, even the finest of brand stories go undiscovered.
I can help.
With a background in content optimization, strategic editorial planning, social media measurement, influencer partnerships, and community growth.
10+ Years in the broadcast and video production industry.
From producer-directing to production management, my focus is always the same—tight stories and clean production lines, while having an absolute blast along the way. Content should be fun, so infuse yours with some!
Audiences are always evolving, and copy has evolved with them.
Understand your audience then cut to the chase with clear language, SEO-optimized structure, and relevant keyword research.
So you’ve got the killer copy, the content strategy, some nifty videos, good to go, right? Wrong! Create a suite of arresting, consistent stills for your brand with either curated image research or photography.

I’m a Scotsman with Seychellois in his blood, and after five years of working between London and Edinburgh, I decided to up and leave it all for a wee adventure.
Adventure brought me to Vancouver, and passion keeps me here. Some things I really care about: ocean conservation, architecture, travel, design, and dinosaurs.
I also really care about creating great work with friendly people, so let’s talk.
