In my previous positions as Manager of Video Services and Senior Video Producer for CNW Creative (Canada Newswire) I have written, produced and directed videos about bionic hands, beer, and yoga. And a lot of other topics and clients ranging from government agencies to non for profit foundations. 

I have worked across Canada, Europe, and the USA, creating content for clients who want to connect with their audiences through multimedia.

Clients include: Kids Help Phone, Shell and Volkswagen Canada, and  The Canadian Journalism Foundation along with hundreds of others.

Prior to CNW, broadcast credits include: five seasons as a food reporter on a bilingual current affairs series Culture Shock/Culture Choc (CBC Newsworld, RDI, TV5).
