VIDEO PRODUCTION

Shooting. Editing. Storytelling.

When the pandemic hit, my usual work slowed down so I started shooting videos on my iPhone.

Queers Artists in a Pandemic is a series I pitched to XtraMagazine.com where I interviewed queer artists in Toronto, Canada about how they adapted their art amid the covid pandemic.

I have tackled an array of issues as an investigative journalist, including technology, politics and sports. I am also very interested in exploring stories about marginalized communities in ways that are accessible to all audiences.

Lucky Stars with Thomas and Tranna is series I stylized after the Psychic Friends Network and vaporwave/synthwave. I also use simple 3D graphics and vector drawings to punch up the jokes with playful edits.

Most of my web articles are for CBC Radio. I find new angles to the radio segments that go to air on shows like The Current.

I also write articles about beer for The Growler, which can be found on other Glacier Media outlets (I am a beer nerd who has spent years brewing at home and have some experience in breweries as well).
