I am a writer, editor, and designer with a formal education in communications and publishing. I have a wide range of skills including writing, editing, graphic design, print production, and marketing. With every project I take on, these skills are increased and improved. I love learning by overcoming challenges and tackling new project goals.

I completed my Master of Publishing at Simon Fraser University in 2015–2017. I graduated with honours from SFU with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Communication and minoring in Publishing (2015). I graduated with distinction and a diploma of Publishing: Techniques & Technologies from the Publishing program at Langara College (2007). During the program, I was the Managing Editor of Pacific Rim Magazine. I also completed a certificate in Editing from SFU’s Writing & Publishing Program in 2010.
