    As a multimedia storyteller, intersectionality is at the core of my creative philosophy, and a quintessential element while crafting a brand strategy that is representative of the clients and the audiences they want to connect with. I enjoy collaborative conceptualising and ideation, with an aim to bring something unique yet relatable to the table, with transformative empathy at its core, all through mostly a show, not tell approach. I believe in the interplay of the macro and the micro – be it how different media communicate the overall message or the way the various parts of a brand overlap. This is best represented in the metaphor of the beehive. Worker bees, under a pre-coded formula, head out into the wild to collect nectar from numerous flowers and bring their unique offerings into an ordered hive to create a singular, balanced product. With degrees in Mass Communication, Journalism, and Public Relations, I have had adventures in both B2B and B2C sectors. As a cultural nomad, I have professionally made camps in non-profits (community, political, sports, arts, sciences, and mental health), tech startups, education, entertainment, immigration, publishing, and film industries, along with digital marketing agencies. I have been a conduit for stories chiefly through words (ghostwriting, copywriting, long-form and short-form blogging, magazine and newspaper articles, Op-Eds, press releases, non-fiction and fiction novel writing, screenwriting, lyrics, and poetry), visual media (event, studio, portrait, brand, and conceptual photography + short film, documentary, and ad filmmaking + graphic design & illustration), networking (event organisation, coordination, management + emceeing), social media (management, coordination, monitoring, and content creation), and technical work (editing, proofreading, and working as a crew on film sets). My motto is learning, always, and I look forward to being part of your brand story.

    I'm a copy editor and writer from Canada, and I divide my time between Edmonton and Ottawa, Canada. My customers turn to me for advice on book-length manuscripts, white papers, journal articles, press releases, statements of purpose, cover letters, grant proposals, personal essays, newsletters, blog text, and website content because nonfiction is my area of specialty as an editor. I have in-depth knowledge of working with texts that were either translated or written by non-native English speakers. I have a sharp ear for awkwardness and usage issues in addition to a strong eye for punctuation and grammar errors. I bring a writer's instinct to the table together with my well-used reference books, both in terms of the flow of the text and in terms of my approach to the the context. I take the effort to offer a simple solution whenever I draw attention to an issue. I have a BA in literature and writing from Canadian University, as well as a professional degree in copyediting from the First Nations University of Canada.
