I’ve been in the digital marketing space for over fifteen years. During this time I’ve built and managed over thirty blogs, newsletters, and websites. In terms of skill set, I am experienced in various content management tools, digital imaging, and advanced SEO techniques. I have formal training in website development, graphic design, and desktop publishing.
In addition to producing digital content for organizations, such as the University of Toronto, and managing blogs for major corporations, I have spearheaded the development of digital and social media initiatives for several academic and governmental organizations. On this page, you will find a sample of my work.

I provided this boutique law firm with website management (including site maintenance, graphic design, and copy writing), the development of social media and digital marketing assets (such as brochures and social media cards) using Adobe Creative Suite, and the implementation of a digital outreach strategy. Efforts to professionalize the firm’s online presence resulted in an uptick in online engagement as well an an increase in business inquiries.

Global Law Firm (2021)
This global law firm required the management of multiple practice-area blogs (mining, insurance, litigation), the production of client-facing digital assets (e.g. proposals, client guides, email “Insights”), and the authoring of a variety of digital content, including practice area descriptions and lawyer profiles. By optimizing posting for audience engagement and proactively managing complex projects, I was able to bring in time-sensitive work on deadline and increase blog views significantly.
Network for the Study of Esotericism in Antiquity (2012–2019)
This international academic organization required full-cycle digital management. This included developing the organization’s website from scratch, online content development and curation, and social media management. In addition to being an important resource for scholars of antiquity, the website was foundational in establishing the organization as one of the leading voices in its field.
University of Toronto Art Museum (2016)
I authored a digital catalogue entry for an 18th century icon in the Art Museum’s Malcove Collection. In addition, I authored long-form research which was used to support the documentation and presentation of objects for a traveling exhibition (Art Gallery of Alberta).
York Christian Apocrypha Symposium (2012)
This York University-affiliated academic organization required a promotional website for its conference series. In addition to building the website, I authored website content and outreach materials for the event.
University of Toronto Department of Chemistry (2010)
University of Toronto’s Department of Chemistry is one of the highest ranked chemistry departments in the world. Here, I updated our website using Drupal CMS and produced a variety of digital content and graphics for inclusion on the website. I also proofread our departmental magazine, Distillations.
