I am currently freelancing as a writer/producer/video editor for branded content, news programs, and documentary projects. 

In my previous position as Senior Video Producer for CNW Creative (Canada Newswire) I have written, produced and directed videos about bionic hands, beer, and yoga, and a bunch of other topics. I've worked across Canada, Europe, and the USA with clients in government, corporate, and non-profit sectors. 

I have also worked in factual and entertainment TV as a food reporter on a bilingual current affairs series Culture Shock/Culture Choc (CBC Newsworld, RDI, TV5), and had positions as researcher, location manager, and production secretary for broadcasters such as SRC (Société Radio-Canada), ARTV, APTN, TVO, W Network, National Georgraphic Channel, YTV, Fox and the History Channel. 

Past clients include: Kids Help Phone, Shell and Volkswagen Canada, and The Canadian Journalism Foundation.
