Overview

I am a graduate of Canada's top radio-broadcasting program at Algonquin College. I have two years of copy-writing experience with Rogers Radio, handling the commercial accounts for many different clients. I also have worked in both News and Promotions, which gave me valuable experience interacting with audiences and trained me to be plugged in and connected. Writing is something I do for fun, it's a bonus to get paid.

Service Description

After 5 years working Rogers Radio, I am now stepping into the world of freelancing. I have written commercials for clients ranging from local mom and pop furniture stores who are holding a Father's day sale, to restaurant chains or concert promoters that require year-long creative campaigns. Because of my previous background with Rogers Radio Promotions and 1310News I also have experience in utilizing social media for marketing purposes, particularly with Facebook and Twitter.

I have already been freelancing in audio-production, putting together music pieces for dramatic and dance companies, as well as some commercial production.
