A love for preserving culture and enriching communities led me to graduate with a B.A. in Anthropology and Journalism from Concordia University in 2014. My first journalism gig was in 2010-11, when I worked for the Concordian newspaper as Music Editor. Working with a tight-knit team of student journalists, I planned a three-page section each week covering the best of Montreal's local music scene.
After graduating, I completed an Editorial Internship at CIM Magazine, an industry publication focused on Canada's mining sector. This position allowed me to get my feet wet writing a variety of stories, from 50-word briefs to 700-word news and 2,000-word feature articles.
Volunteering has been a great way to hone my skills and connect with the community. I have led a memoir-writing workshop for seniors at the The Yellow Door in Montreal, edited website copy for CoconutLime Nutrition in Toronto and written for Montreal music blogs LIVENLOUD and Midnight Poutine. I also freelance as an academic editor for university students, including MA and Ph.D candidates.
I currently contribute food features and profiles to the Montreal Gazette and Ottawa Citizen's style magazines, Urban Expressions and Ottawa Style. My work has also appeared in Vice Magazine and This Magazine.
