Copywriting Design Marketing Strategy Content

Experience

Summary

I started my career penning lyrics for a variety of musical artists. I quickly migrated into production, moved to Los Angeles and started a management co. After completing a degree in advertising & marketing, copywriting continues to be my focus.

Work history

Copywriter
As part of the pitch team, we won The Home Depot's digital account and exceeded KPIs for every project. It was an honour writing for such an exceptional brand!
Copywriter
As L1 neared its 'Expiry' kick-off, I was tasked with on-boarding the company's Sweeps initiatives. Aimed at giving Collectors value for their soon-to-be retired Miles, these contests were an engaging way to bring the Air Miles voice to life.
Cerebral Entertainment Inc.
Brand Manager
Positioned as the primary management company for 3 major-label recording artists, I cut my marketing teeth on the flesh of the music industry. I developed strategies with A&R, agents, publishers etc., while drafting over 50 licensing agreements.

Portfolio

Heineken

It was important to bring the urban mojo back to the brand. This work taps the city's underground and leads the culturally adventurous down dark, celestial alleys.

Chrysler/Jeep

Pole signs that entertained skiers while they rode the lifts at some of Alberta's best known ski resorts.

Jeep/Lysol/Henckel

This is a collection of adventitious work. While striking without warning, each idea offers its own unique insight.

PayPal

Aimed at business owners across Canada, these rich media & standard banners speak to PayPal's breadth of services & experience.

Air Miles

Air Miles impels us to take advantage of every opportunity, big and small.

Ideal team

A team where no one person believes they're the smartest person in the room. Whether you're working with one person or across entire departments, the magic comes from harnessing the unique perspectives of each team member.
