As a former language student, it’s fitting that I eventually became a writer. Being able to mould, shape, and turn words into an informative, engaging, and readable whole is what energizes me.
Over my 20+ years as a professional writer, I’ve honed my craft and refined my ability to write in a range of styles. That includes journalism, business formal, conversational and everything in between. I enjoy the challenges of working on complex technical proposal projects with multiple moving parts. Yet I’m equally at home using my creative abilities to write compelling blog posts, content marketing articles, and web copy.
As a former freelance business journalist, I wrote for The Globe and Mail, The Toronto Star, CMA Management, Advocis’ Forum, Investor’s Digest, and Benefits Canada. In 2003, I was the proud recipient of a journalism award for an article I wrote on socially responsible investment funds. During this period, I also contributed chapters to two peer-reviewed books on innovation.
Over the past 13 years I’ve acquired expertise as a proposal specialist, managing Proposal (RFP) submissions from start to end. More recently, I’ve branched into content marketing and copywriting (digital and print), on just about any topic you care to mention. Of course, I do have some niche areas, like financial services, health care, science & innovation, entrepreneurship, careers & HR, and e-commerce. From time to time you may spot some of my content marketing work in The National Post, the Toronto Star, Maclean’s, or Chatelaine.
