With experience in both traditional media, and the constantly evolving landscape of digital media, I have experience to make your online projects successful. Holding a Bachelors Degree in Broadcast Journalism and a Masters Degree in Communications and Technology, combined with more than a decade of experience at major media outlets (CBC, The Score, Toronto Star, FOX TV, ESPN) I can manage your new media projects and get your non-techie employees up to speed on Web 2.0 tools. I currently run the Toronto Film Challenge, an event I competed in three times, and won once.
