Work with me

I create intelligent content

I’m a Toronto-based freelance writer and journalist with bylines in some of Canada’s largest media organizations.

Throughout my career, I’ve worn many hats. I’ve been a reporter, a copy editor, a page designer, and a proofreader. That variety of experience means I can be versatile, adapting to each client’s specific needs. 

My services

  • Blog post/article packages – writing, editing, ghostwriting
  • Website content – writing, editing, ghostwriting
  • Newsletters – writing, editing, ghostwriting
  • Ebooks and digital downloads – writing, editing, ghostwriting
  • LinkedIn posts – ghostwriting

My superpowers

I use a journalistic style.

I’m a linguistic minimalist, and proud of it. I remove the clutter so the point is clear, memorable and delightful.

I can synthesize information quickly, transforming complex narratives into relatable stories that connect emotionally with readers.

I’m great with long forms of content, from in-depth features to full-length books.

I’m skilled with collaborative writing and ghostwriting. 

I write journalistic, informational stories. I keep it simple, but I never dumb it down.

I love to work with people who see storytelling as a driver for social change and positive impact.

My speciality subjects

  • workplaces
  • technology and innovation
  • personal finance
  • parenting and families
  • real estate and renovations
  • books and reading
  • sustainable living

Not just a writer

I’m a content evangelist and a publishing consultant. I advise my clients on content strategy, visuals, SEO, and social media.

I’m able to oversee editorial projects from ideation to planning, writing, editing, design, proofreading and publishing.

I love to mentor non-writers, coaching them to write clear, persuasive and moving content they are proud to share with the world.

I talk about the transformative power of storytelling everywhere I go.

What’s the cost?

This depends on your project — its research requirements, length and complexity.  

After we discuss your needs, I create a quote and timeline, describing the scope of the project and a suggested plan for how we can work together.

If my proposal excites you, we go ahead and rock the internet with your content. If not, no worries; it’s a no-commitment consultation.

How I work

If you’d like to know more about how it would be to work with me, here’s a description of how scheduling, technology and payments tend to work. Keep in mind, every client is different and I adapt to your needs and constraints.
