I wish I had a dollar for every time someone said to me, “Wow, you really are a Jack of all trades.”
And, I guess if I look from the outside in, I realize that my life is full of experiences in many different fields. So, they’re not wrong; my knowledge is broad.
I’ve worked career jobs. And, I’ve had super cool micro-jobs that have lasted a whopping 10 days—like my job as a production assistant for the live show at Crankworx.
But, don’t get me wrong, they haven’t all been swell. Long before I knew what an environmentalist was, I worked at a garbage bag manufacturing plant. My point? It was hardly a glamourous or healthy job—but it made me realize who I want to be – if not, at least, who I don’t want to be.
In all of those experiences, three values kept popping up. Creativity. Details. Action.
Creativity. Details. Action.
I didn’t always recognize it though.
Over the years, I’ve come up with recipes for daily specials in restaurants. I’ve taken on photography challenges. I’ve managed 80+ volunteers during a Federal election. And, I’ve even managed a surgery schedule, which requires more creativity, details and action than anything I’ve ever done.
Now that I’m more than 5 years into this freelancing thing, I am fully aware of how much I value each experience. In fact, I now believe that those interests are what pushed me into accepting many unexpected and challenging jobs.

FAQ about what I offer
What communication service do you like providing the most?
I can’t say that there is any one thing I like to do the most. But, I do love managing or participating in a project from beginning to end, like with an online course (planning, document design, videography, photography, stylistic editing and posting content). I like to see how all of the moving parts work together.
Do you focus solely on creative projects?
No, I’ve also studied and worked in technical writing, so I manage projects like requests for proposals (RFPs), employee handbooks, and online software documentation.
Do you take on clients in any industry?
Generally speaking, no. But, potential clients should feel free to ask. I am open to anything that I have the skills and the time for. And, if I can’t do it, there is always a chance I can connect someone with an even better fit.
What type of clients are you seeking?
I decided to focus my business on food, however I’ve left the definition open enough to include sport and tourism. I mean, who doesn’t eat while exercising and travelling?
With that said, food is the topic that I’m most passionate about, and food photography is the skill that I want to nourish the most. Although, it is easy for me to draw on my experience in tourism and recreation.
I studied outdoor recreation leadership for my first diploma. Plus, leading training for snowboard instructors was the reason that I moved to the Coast Mountains in the first place.
Some might also expect that I am easily talked in to working in politics again. That’s still to be seen.
