About Me

I graduated with a major in political science from the University of British Columbia where I also covered sporting events for the school paper. I've written for non-profits and small businesses in Vancouver, focusing on blog and social media posts. I've written copy about local businesses, blog posts about logistics and supply chain. I love adding a comedic touch to my work, and I'm a sucker for superheroes.
