As a former journalist who has spent decades covering Toronto communities and local government and a media / communications advisor working with civic leaders, I bring a wealth of skills and experience to any communications role. I can help you tell your story through words, images and video, and hone your message and narrative when dealing with the news-media.
During the course of my career as a journalist, I’ve written extensively about Toronto City government and politics, and learned to communicate often complicated information about finance, infrastructure and planning and development. I have told stories about business, science and technology, and the people in Toronto’s diverse communities. Here is a sampling.
Over the past year I have written, edited and curated electronics newsletters for two Toronto Councillors: former Willowdale Councillor John Filion and more recently, Toronto-Danforth Councillor Paula Fletcher. These four samples demonstrate my range of storytelling and communication strategies outside a journalistic context.
During the 2022 municipal election, I wrote, shot and edited several campaign videos for Willowdale council candidate Markus O’Brien Fehr, and applied those same skills in Councillor Paula Fletcher’s office in late 2022 and early 2023. Here is a selection of four videos.
