I’m a Canadian multimedia journalist telling news stories, enterprise reporting, and writing about lifestyle and entertainment.
This platform has been an evolving creative website for the past several years. I actually launched it as a fashion blog back in the day when the trend was being born (around 2010/11), and it has changed as much as its ‘chameleon’ writer today.
Before becoming a journalist, I fell in love with art: theatre, fashion design, and writing — I adored learning different ways of expression, and understanding how people told their personal stories, surviving their toughest feats.
When I first realized I wanted to make a living out of telling stories, my focus was on lifestyle and entertainment because I love making people smile and feeling good.
I remember hearing, ‘when someone laughs, they forget their problems for 10 seconds.’
I don’t know how true that is, but if I could help someone forget their issues for a brief moment – my day was made.
Near the end of my last year of journalism school, my interest turned to news as well. I especially loved working on long-form investigative pieces. Telling the news is a privilege, not only do you give a platform to those not heard, you are documenting history as it unfolds. It’s a responsibility I will never take for granted.
With an entertainment background, I had to work triple-times harder to prove myself — and I did — paid my dues and earned my stripes.
Looking back, I’m appreciative that I found my calling a little later in life because I know now that being a journalist is exactly why I was put on this beautiful earth, and if it wasn’t for all the ‘hats’ I tried on, and self exploration, I wouldn’t feel this fulfilled.
I’m excited to see what comes next — I have a lot of aspirations.
When I’m not reporting, you can find me hitting the pavement for a solid long-distance run, hiking, having deep chats with my cats Henry and Waffles, or enjoying a large glass/bottle(s) of wine with my closest friends — my rocks!
Thank you for taking time to read my story — I love sharing adventures with you.
Cheers to more stories to come!
