Location icon Victoria BC, Canada

I completed my master’s degree in Religion, Conflict and Journalism at the University of Sheffield, UK, and currently reside on beautiful Vancouver Island, where I am Digital Media Officer & Web Coordinator with the University of Victoria’s Peter B. Gustavson School of Business. In between, I spent four years writing for the UK’s longest-running heavy metal publication, Terrorizer magazine, and was the marketing assistant at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, where I led the production of written marketing and communications materials.

I'm interested in opportunities in the not-for-profit and public sector, and get especially fired up by arts, culture and the environment.
