Copywriter. Aspiring ACD.
Throughout my career I've not only been able to work on big brands like Ikea, Canadian Tire, Volkswagen, Honda, and Molson, but I've been able to work with some of the best people in the business. When I'm not pouring creativity onto a page, I'm trying to contribute to agency culture in a fun and engaging way. I'm always open to new opportunities to grow so feel free to reach out.
