Freelance Sports Writer & Digital Storyteller

I am a writer, editor, graphic designer, and digital media strategist with a plethora of communications experiences. My niche is covering sports events editorially and on social media. I’ve worked with local, provincial, national and international sports organizations, and while my focus is on sports media, I have worked in areas as diverse as physics and child welfare.

Born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, I decided that I wanted to work in sports media (an opportunity to combine my passions for sports and writing) when I was 14 years old.

I am a self-defined rink rat, and can often be found at a rink in the Lower Mainland either volunteering as a head coach with one of VFIHA’s U18 teams or playing with my own rec team. In addition, I sit on the VFIHA board as their Director of Community Engagement.

EXPERIENCE

After actively pursuing writing and publication opportunities throughout high school, I continued my education at Simon Fraser University, where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts with a Major in Communication and a Biomedical Physiology and Kinesiology Certificate in Health and Fitness Studies.

I’m currently working with Rugby Canada as their Communications Manager, freelance writing for organizations such as the IIHF, on the VFIHA board as Director of Community Engagement, and working towards a Certificate in Creative Writing with a specializtion in Creative non-Fiction with the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies.

I have worked in communications with organizations such as the International Paralympic Committee, Curl BC, Rowing Canada Aviron, TRIUMF and VACFSS, and have covered sports as a digital media coordinator at the PyeongChang 2018, Tokyo 2020 and Beijing 2022 Paralympics.
