Toronto, ON, Canada


Creative Writer


I have written material/content for just about every consumer category and product. I have written several books and am able to tell a story or send a message in thirty seconds of airtime, six inches of copy or three hundred pages of a book. I like to approach each writing project by first finding the voice that will communicate the story.
I love to write.
