I’m a writer and editor living and working out of Ottawa, Ontario. I took my first job as a copywriter when I was going into my third year of university, and have been working as a communications professional ever since. I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Ottawa in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts – Specialization in English.
Over the course of my career so far, I have worked in a variety of sectors, including nonprofit, environmental, public health, private security, and government agencies. I specialize in narrative writing, articles and press releases, editing for style, grammar, and content, and adapting scientific or technical text into plain language. I like fast-paced environments and short deadlines. I’m a flexible, adaptable writer, and I learn new styles and formats quickly: show me an example of what you want done, and I can recreate it for you—even if I’ve never done it before.
In my spare time, I like to write fiction and poetry, read fantasy novels, cook new recipes, and play collaborative roleplaying games. My wide and varied interests include Irish mythology, Romantic and Modernist poetry, the history of food, upbeat science fiction films, the Dragon Age series, and Canada’s role in WWII espionage. I collect books, dice, and—apparently—looseleaf tea, and stories are the most important thing in the world to me. If you’d like to get in touch, you can reach me here!
